Nada Cyclone Affects Cauvery Delta Regions
Nada cyclone formed at Bay of Bengal is nearing the coastal regions of Tamil Nadu. Rains have started in many parts of the state. Thanjavur, Thiruvarur, Nagapattinam, Cuddalore and Chennai district are warned with severe rainfall from Meteorological Department.
The depression from Bay of Bengal had moved northwest with the speed of 15 kilometres per hour. It is presently in 350 kilometres southeast away from Chennai and 270 km east-southeast of Puducherry. Light to moderate rainfall is expected everywhere in Tamil Nadu. The coastal regions are warned with heavy rainfall on 1st and 2nd December.
Already delta regions are getting severe rainfall including Karur, Nagapattinam, Trichy and Pudukottai. There is heavy storm with rain in those regions. Due to this rainfall, government had announced holiday to schools and colleges in these districts.
The cyclone is about to cross the coastal region at the mid night tonight. Government had taken precautions measures to safe guard the people.
We did not forget about last year's cyclone which severely damaged Chennai and surrounding districts. Hope the government had cleared the flow of water path and drainages in the cities.
According to Skymat Weather 'the system will continue to move in west-northwest direction and is likely to cross the Indian coast somewhere between Vedaranniyam and Puducherry, i.e. close to Cuddalore by the early morning hours of December 2.'
