The regional meteorological department in Chennai of India said on Wednesday that parts of Tamil Nadu will continue to receive heavy rainfall for the next few days due to depression over the Bay of Bengal.
Issuing a bulletin, the meteorological department said, “Under the influence of the cyclonic circulation over southeast Bay of Bengal and neighbourhood, a low-pressure area has formed over the same region. Associated cyclonic circulation extends up to 4.5 km above mean sea level. It is very likely to concentrate into a depression over Southwest and adjoining Southeast Bay of Bengal during the next 36 hours. It is likely to move west-northwestwards and reach near the north Tamil Nadu coast by the early morning of November 11, 2021.”
Earlier, because of heavy rainfall, the Tamil Nadu government on Tuesday declared a local holiday on Wednesday and Thursday in nine districts including Chennai, Chengalpattu and Tiruvallur.
