Low pressure to bring more rain in coastal TN districts


The coastal districts of Tamil Nadu are likely to get widespread heavy rain for the next two days, officials at the Regional Meteorological Centre, Chennai, have said.

Schools and colleges will remain closed in Chennai, Kancheepuram and Tiruvallur among many other districts on Monday.

On Sunday, the coastal districts of Tamil Nadu and the Union Territory of Puducherry received widespread rains. This is due to a trough of low pressure at Comorin. Starting Tuesday, the city will witness light rain with a minimum temperature of 24 degrees Celsius and a maximum of 32 degrees Celsius,” they pointed out. On Monday, rain or thundershowers might occur over coastal Tamil Nadu and Puducherry and at few places over interior places in the State.

1 killed in wall collapse

The wall of a dilapidated building collapsed following rain, resulting in the death of 23-year-old Raj in Pattalam here. Raj, who was sleeping in his house on Parasuraman Street, died when a portion of the wall on the first floor of a nearby building crashed in the morning. Chandran, a resident of the street, said the residents of the damaged building have been requesting the owners to raze it. A few months ago, some workers were engaged in demolishing the building, but had left the work incomplete.
