All schools, colleges, educational institutes, and government offices including the Offices of Public Undertakings/ Corporations, Boards, Banks, and Financial Institutions in Chennai, Tiruvallur, Kancheepuram and Chengalpattu Districts will remain closed on December, 5. The decision to close all schools has been taken due to the cyclonic storm 'Michaung'. The government has released directives in this regard. 

According to the order released by the government, deep depression over the West Bay of Bengal has intensified into a cyclonic storm 'Michaung' and lay centred at 8.30 AM on December 4, 2023, at 90 km east, northeast of Chennai. It is expected to move North, and northwestwards, intensify further and reach the west central bay of Bengal off South Andhra Pradesh and adjoining North Tamil Nady by the December, 5th forenoon. Due to this cyclonic storm, Chennai, Tiruvallur, Kancheepuram, and Chengalpattu Districts are likely to experience heavy to very heavy rainfall and strong winds. In view of the above situation, the government has declared a holiday on December, 5.

It should be noted that the essential services like police, fire service, local bodies, milk supply, water supply, hospitals/medical shops, power supply, transport, fuel outlets, hotels/resturants etc and the offices engaged in disaster response, relief and rescue activities will remain functional. 

Heavy Rainfall in various parts

Due to the approaching cyclone Michong, heavy rainfall has been reported in many parts of Chennai and Kanchipuram. This has resulted in severe waterlogging in several areas of Tamil Nadu. As a result, the NDRF team had to rescue around 15 people from the Tambaram area near Peerkankaranai and Perungalathur. Furthermore, for safety reasons, bridge number 14 between Basin Bridge and Vyasarpadi has been closed as it is flowing above the danger mark.
