The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has forecasted substantial rainfall in multiple districts of Tamil Nadu, including Tiruvallur, Chennai, Chengalpattu, Kancheepuram, Ranipet, Vellore, Tirupattur, and Tiruvannamalai on Wednesday, November 15.

Many regions in Tamil Nadu experienced heavy rainfall on Tuesday, prompting the declaration of holidays for schools, colleges, and educational institutions in several districts today.

On Tuesday, schools were closed in Ariyalur, Thanjavur, Villupuram, Tiruvannamalai, Nagapattinam, Tiruvarur, and Cuddalore districts.

The Chennai Regional Meteorology Department anticipates heavy rainfall in various Tamil Nadu districts over the next two days. On November 16 and 17, heavy rain is expected in isolated places across Thoothukudi, Virudhunagar, Madurai, Dindigul, Sivaganga, Pudukkottai, Thanjavur, Tiruchirappalli, Perambalur, Ariyalur, and Cuddalore.

The weather office attributes the weather conditions to an upper air cyclonic circulation over the Andaman-Nicobar Islands, forming a low-pressure area over the Southeast Bay of Bengal and adjoining Andaman-Nicobar Islands. This system is anticipated to move west-northwestward, concentrating into a Depression over West Central Bay of Bengal by November 16.

The Cuddalore district is currently experiencing rough seas due to the overturning circulation in the Bay of Bengal. The district administration has advised fishermen to avoid venturing into the sea until further notice due to very rough seas with two to three-meter high waves.

State Disaster Management Minister KKSSR Ramachandran reassured that the State Government has implemented all necessary precautions, and the situation is currently under control.
