Another big warning for Tamil Nadu...The state to receive more rainfall! Here's the latest prediction

In the wake of a new Low-Pressure Area, the current trend of rainfall is expected to gain momentum as Tamil Nadu would receive intense downpours from November 16. Several parts of the state are recording incessant and sporadic rainfalls for the past few weeks, which had majorly disrupted the lives of lakhs of people as they are facing the events of waterlogging and frequent cut-offs of electricity.

The current trend of rainfall is expected to subdue after the active Low-Pressure Area (LPA) moved into the Arabian Sea across the Kerala coast. However, the latest prediction has revealed that another LPA has been getting developed in the Bay of Bengal and it would cause heavy rains in Tamil Nadu from November 16 and it would continue for at least two days. 

According to reports, a weather-watcher in the state has predicted that Chennai and adjoining areas will have heavy rains on November 16 and 17 due to this Low-Pressure Area as the prediction has spelled another warning to the state. India's weather watchdog, India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted light to moderate rains with thunderstorms and lighting in several parts of Tamil Nadu in the next 24 hours from Monday. 

In the midst of a fresh warning, the Tamil Nadu government has been deploying rescue teams and efforts to address the calamity caused by the rainfall. A total of 1,149 personnel of the National Disaster Response Force and 899 personnel of the State Disaster Response Force are currently on standby in various districts of the state to respond to the challenges immediately. 

Three teams of NDRF are camping at the Nilgiris, Dindigul, and Theni districts for search, rescue, and relief operations while five SDRF teams are being stationed at Cuddalore, Tiruvallur, Chennai, Mayiladuthurai, and Kancheepuram. On Monday, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin visited Sirkazhi in the Mayiladuthurai district where heavy rainfall has claimed lives and caused severe waterlogging. 

At least four people have died in the district due to heavy rains and a total of 83 cattle have died, while the rainfall destroyed over 530 huts. The Chief Minister took stock of the rescue efforts in the district and was briefed about how the district is prepared to tackle the upcoming downpours. After meeting the officials, MK Stalin distributed the relief materials to the people and solaced them for the losses they have incurred.
