Chennai: With the Northeast monsoon becoming vigorous, rains continued to batter the state, even as rainwater today entered a government hospital in Chennai, causing inconvenience to the patients.

As Chennai continued to reel under the impact of the monsoon, rainwater today entered the Tambaram Taluk Government General Hospital at Chrompet, popularly called the “Chrompet GH.”

Authorities maintained that healthcare services to the people continued.

“We are using motor pumps to flush out the flood water, the work is on continuously. However, since the rain continues, there is no let up in inflow too,” a medical official told PTI, adding “not all the portions of the hospital are affected, it is only to some extent on the ground level.”
