Chennai, Dec 7: Life in flood-hit Chennai was slowly limping back to normalcy on Monday, with shops opening up and a massive clean up initiated in areas where the water levels have receded.
The living conditions here were still not okay. Resumption of auto-rickshaw services and public transport made people's life easier after being completely crippled for the past five days.
A major cleaning operation was launched in the areas where the water levels have receded to prevent an epidemic outbreak.
While rains have stopped in Chennai, there were showers in some part of Tamil Nadu, including Thiruvarur, Nagapattinam and Cuddalore districts. The Met office said a new low pressure area was formed over the Bay of Bengal.
Schools and colleges are yet to open in Chennai.
The Southern Railway said train services have resumed from Chennai.
