Post-Cyclone Challenges Continue: More Rainfall Forecasted for Tamil Nadu and Kerala

Chennai: The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has projected additional rainfall for the states of Tamil Nadu and Kerala in the upcoming days, prolonging the challenges faced by these regions. As per the IMD, light to moderate rain, accompanied by gusty winds, is anticipated in Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Puducherry, and Karaikal over the next 2–3 days.

This forecast comes amid Chennai grappling with the aftermath of Cyclone Michaung, which brought heavy rains, leading to disruptions in normal life. Some areas in Tamil Nadu and Kerala experienced rainfall on Saturday. Tirunelveli and Coonoor in Tamil Nadu recorded 2 cm of rainfall, while Vadavathoor in Kerala received 3 cm of rain.

Educational institutions in Chennai have remained closed since heavy rains hit on December 4, causing flooding in numerous areas. In response to the challenges faced by residents, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin announced financial aid on Saturday. Each affected family in Chennai is assured a sum of Rs 6,000 as immediate relief.

However, there are calls for increasing the relief amount. Tamil Nadu BJP President K Annamalai is urging the government to raise the aid to Rs 10,000 per affected family, emphasizing the need for additional support. He stated, "The state government didn't contribute a single penny towards the relief fund."
