In a weather bulletin released on Monday morning, the IMD stated that the depression in the Bay of Bengal will  aggravate to a deep depression and move towards the coast of Tamil Nadu by Wednesday, bringing heavy to very heavy rains in the delta districts, namely Thanjavur, Tiruvarur, Nagapattinam, Pudukottai, Cuddalore, Sivagangai and Ramanathapuram.

Cyclone Gaja made its landfall in Tamil Nadu in the early hours of November 16 with wind speeds touching 120 kms per hour. The cyclone caused extensive damage by uprooting electricity poles, disrupting telephone lines and mobile connectivity in the region, effectively plunging the region into darkness and isolation. Though relief works are being carried out in the districts, there are areas where people are still waiting for basic necessities like food and water.

As the delta districts in Tamil Nadu are grappling with the effects of cyclone Gaja, these heavy rains might take a toll on many of the people.
