A scene from MKB Nagar in North Chennai

Raising fears of a repeat of the 2015 rain havoc, rain lashed  Chennai  and its suburbs from Thursday evening to Friday morning, affecting the life of most of the people. Though intermittent light showers continued Friday evening to Saturday morning, the water receded and normal life continued as authorities and volunteers joined hands to manage the situation. Severely affected areas included Gengu Reddy subway, LB Road, Taramani Link Road and Velachery. Heavy rainfall inundated a significant portion of North Chennai resulting in a death due to wall collapse.

Here is a collection of The Hindu 's coverage of the incident and it's aftereffects.
