Heavy rains lashed Chennai and other parts of Tamil Nadu for the
fifth consecutive day on Friday, throwing life out of gear and
disrupting train and flight schedules even as 55 people lost their lives
in rain-related incidents.

The meteorological department warned of more rains in Chennai till
the weekend. A new trough of low pressure in the Bay of Bengal could
also lead to rain in some coastal areas, it said.

Seven more people lost their lives in rain-related incidents
overnight, taking the death toll to 55. The government had on Thursday
put the toll in such incidents at 48, including 27 in Cuddalore district
