“The wind speed near Chennai 90-100 kmph. Heavy rains and storm surge are expected. Landfall process commenced at 2 p.m.,” Mohapatra said.
Power supply was suspended in many parts as a precautionary measure. About 8,000 people from low-lying areas in north Chennai, Pazhaverkadu in Tiruvallur district and villages off Mamallapuram, in Kanchipuram district were safely evacuated to 95 relief shelters, officials said.
Long distance buses have been stalled and traffic came to a grinding halt in most areas with uprooted trees and electric poles blocking the roads. All suburban train services have also been suspended.
Southern Railway announced cancellation of all 17 trains originating from Chennai central, as well as Egmore.PTI
