Severe rains have lashed South Tamilnadu for the past three days. Districts normally that are drought prone like Ramanathapuram, Tuticorin, Sivaganga have been receiving copious rains. Many tanks are overflowing. Rail and Road transport between Chennai and Tircuhi have been broken for the past two days. Tiruchi city, Srirangam, Lalgudi and other towns are severely flooded. There are not many bloggers from south Tamilnadu, so you won't be getting much news from blogs. Better check the newspapers to get the real picture.
