Ironically, the northeast monsoon, which set in during the last week of October had led to severe water logging in Chennai recently. However, while water logging cleared in Chennai's main city area the next day itself, several low-lying areas remained inundated for a week. With the cyclonic system's movement, the rainfall in Chennai and other districts will gradually decrease, he said.
