New Delhi: Heavy rains continue to flood Chennai and neighbouring districts today with several residential areas remaining inundated.

The flood situation comes as Cyclone Michaung is expected to make landfall in a few hours from now, according to NDTV.

Civic body personnel were reportedly struggling as several parts of the city remain submerged in the stagnant water.

Meanwhile, footage showed streets in floods and parked cars being swept away in heavy currents.

The city is experiencing severe traffic jams, in places including Chennai's Chrompet GST Road.

The Vadakarai Road in north Chennai is flooded, making it impassable from Madhavaram to Sengunram.

Chennai city and nearby districts saw heavy rainfall through the night with Meenambakkam recording 196 mm and Nungambakkam receiving 154.3 mm.

The schools, colleges and government officers in the city are closed for the day as authorities urged private companies to allow workers to stay home and work.

Chief Minister MK Stalin last night reviewed safety measures alongside monitoring the situation.

Authorities opened 5,000 relief centres in coastal districts to help people affected by the heavy rain.
