Seven more persons lost their lives in rain-related incidents in Tamil Nadu as the North East Monsoon continued to pound several parts of the state disrupting rail and road traffic.
Parts of South Chennai including St Thomas Mount and Velacherry witnessed heavy water logging which even resulted in railway under-bridges being flooded.
Schools and colleges in northern districts including Chennai, Vellore, Thiruvallur and Kanchipuram remained closed.
Office goers in the capital city had a harrowing time as they had to wade through knee-deep and in some places waist-deep waters.
Trains leaving Chennai were also affected due to water logging in the tracks.
