Tomorrow, cyclonic storm Michaung is predicted to make landfall in Andhra Pradesh, dumping a lot of rain on Chennai and Puducherry. Chennai's transportation system suffered as a result of numerous trains and planes being canceled. Even though government equipment was sent out to drain the stagnant water and flooding, many areas of Chennai, Kancheepuram, Chengalpattu, and Tiruvallur districts have been inundated.
Furthermore, the Office of the Collector and District Magistrate, Gajapati, announced that all of Odisha's primary, upper primary, high schools, and Anganwadi centers will be closed on December 6 due to the possibility of heavy rainfall.
