Chennai Rains: City reminded of 2015 floods after heavy rain brings it to stand still
Talk about rains in front of a Chennaite, he/she is likely to turn glum immediately. There is a reason behind those sullen faces at the very mention of rains. The residents of the capital city of Tamil Nadu are still being haunted by the horrible memories of the 2015 floods that left the entire city inundated and took the lives of at least 150 people across the state. Now, as it is once again raining cats and dogs in Chennai, several coastal areas of the state and Puducherry since Monday because of the onset of northeast monsoon, Chennaites are praying hard that things don't go out of hands as it happened during the 2015 floods. It's not that things are fine in Chennai currently as several places in the city got waterlogged on Monday and Tuesday due to heavy showers. Because of waterlogging, Chennai experienced massive traffic jams on several major thoroughfares in the city in the last two days.
