Rains abated in Chennai on Thursday, giving relief to people tormented by the heavy downpour of the last three days but excessive discharge of water last night from Chembarambakkam lake on the outskirts flooded new areas of the city threatening to uproot people from their homes.
Flight services in and out of Chennai Airport were suspended on Wednesday due to the heavy rains and water logging on the runway and the Airports Authority of India had also issued a NOTAM (Notice to Airmen) to all air operators in this regard. Aviation authorities had said that the operations could resume only after rains stopped and water receded at the airport.
