Insane rainrate in Nungambakkam. Looks like not 1 or 2 stations many places will cross 100 mm. Almost close to be called as cloud burst and rains may continue for another 1 hour,” he wrote.

Some, unfortunately, were stuck in traffic. “Nungambakkam High Road must have been designed by the Devil himself. Stuck in it for over an hour. What is with this road that it is perennially jammed while Cathedral Road remains relatively free?” a user wrote.
