The rains have just stopped, after belting down relentlessly for about 30 hrs. This must easily rank amongst the most rainy days for Chennai in recent times.(21 cm in a period of 5 hrs and total of 27cm in 24hrs). Luckily, I did not have to go out of my Hostel Room for most of the time. But, I can only imagine the hardship that office/school goers would have faced with the usual Chennai water-logging. The cyclone, which was initially predicted to cross the coast near Chennai, has now moved further North and crossed the coast nead Ongole (AP).
