Chennai: Rescue and relief operations were in full swing on Thursday in the worst flood-affected areas of Chennai and its suburbs as well as neighbouring districts, which enjoyed a welcome respite from the torrential rains.
Heavy rains continued to lash coastal Cuddalore district, one of the worst affected areas ever since the northeast monsoon fury started early last month, and Villupuram and Kanyakumari districts as the death toll in the state mounted to 269.
Chennai continued to remain virtually cut off from the rest of the country with air, rail and road transport services still suspended while public transport was crippled due to flooding of arterial main roads, including the Mount Road over the Marmalong Bridge.
However, limited commercial flight operations are likely to start from the Rajali naval air station in Arakkonam, near Chen-nai, connecting Hydera-bad on Friday, the Civil Aviation Ministry said.
These flights will be operated by Air India and a few private airlines. Rajali is located around 60 km away from Chennai. Southern Railway cancelled all inter and intra state train services till Saturday while the airport operations will remain suspended till Sunday.
