Chennai: Heavy rain continued to lash Chennai on Thursday, flooding streets and throwing traffic out of gear even as people struggled to commute in the city.
The traffic moved at a snail's pace as the downpour caused heavy water-logging in various parts of the city, the ANI reported.
The local administration has identified 15 zones where the situation has dramatically worsened.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister K Palaniswami chaired a high-level meeting to take stock of the situation. He later announced a slew of relief measures for the flood-affected areas.
On Wednesday, two children were electrocuted as a result of the heavy rain.
A leaky wire from a pillar box which was covered in rainwater had led to the electrocution.
