Waited for the last week or so- to have a consensus - but I suppose before a consensus, rains could lash. Hence posting this.

Extreme rainfall alert once again for #Chennai

Twin circulations on both sides of the Indian Peninsula decide the fate of #Chennairains now. With the MJO in Phase 3- firmly - indications of an easterly surge and also a low-level circulation would increase the convective activity over #Central and #Northern #TamilNadu
Moderate rainfall for #Chennai to start from the evening. Southern suburbs ECR OMR Region would experience moderate to heavy rainfall from afternoon City will start to get rains from evening. Rains are expected through night and tomorrow it is going to be heavy to extremely heavy

Chennai has been worse severely hit & these are lessons learnt from #chennai floods & rains 2021

Nature is the most powerful force in the universe.

Prayers stay with you if you invest in them.

A positivity mindset is key to survive hard times.

People help each other out when there is time of need!

Manual labourers need to be treated with much more respect.

The city requires a lot of work and only depending on the government is totally absurd.

A bunch of studios and big apartments motored out water to the streets. How much ever rich they get, a responsible mentality is never attained!

Visuals of houses submerged in #Miduchur, in Chennai suburbs. The residents have vacated. There’s no entry or exit to these houses as water has completely engulfed this neighbourhood of Varadarajapuram. @xpresstn @NewIndianXpress #chennaifloods2021
If not for the Municipality sign board, one can’t recognise if this is a street or not. A whole neighbourhood in #MullaiNagar at Mudichir looks like a big water body after it was flooded due to rains. @xpresstn @NewIndianXpress #Chennai
Rain hasn’t spared event the costly apartments. A huge gated community with about 500 houses witness severe inundation in Mudichur. Luckily, these apartments don’t have a ground floor house but all the residents have moved their cars out. @xpresstn @NewIndianXpress

Extremely heavy rainfall alert for #Chennai

Close to 200+ mm rainfall is expected in most places in the city overnight.

I am still seeing messages where people are asking whether it would rain as it is being "hyped". Please note that if it doesn't happen we would be the happiest.

But unfortunately - the blogging community on the whole is of the same opinion that there would be heavy rains
Not only Chennai

#Kanchipuram #Chengalpattu #Kallakurichi #Villupuram #Cuddalore #Nagapattinam #Karaikkal #Pondicherry #Ranipet #Thiruvallur #Vellore and even #Krishnagiri should be on high alert as the system is expected to move inland

91B is gradually intensifying and rainfall will gradually increase over the course of the day.

Whatever warnings that were given still hold good.

Avoid venturing out.

#Nellore to #Karaikkal coast to be on high alert as the system is consolidating and the cloud bands are getting organized- slowly and steadily.

This would mean that rains will be more as the system nears the coast
Many asked me that there is not as much rainfall as anticipated. This would be primarily because the system is getting organized slowly and building a strong convective outer band. You can clearly see in the below image

#ChennaiRains2021 I played albeit a small but effective role in the deluge of 2015,in Madras..I need to acknowledge 3 facts/factors,then:-
BSNL worked round the clock to restore lines as quickly as possible;
Having committed a monumental error, the then ruling party jumped into
action, and their disaster management much more efficiently than the present one, whose intensions seem to be only photo ops; moving people, and putting them at safe points ,one must learn from people like Ms. Apoorva IAS, & another lady , Ms. Anu George, a prodigal young officer
Whom if I'm not mistaken is presently is one of 4 IAS officers attached to the offices of CM- TN; I don't see any of them - they understand the lacunae in the system of maintanence and work around it towards immediate relief , it's a fact that their reports got scuttled once

Though water has receded at some places, several roads are still waterlogged.

These visuals from GN Chetty Road, T Nagar 👇🏼
