Pre-monsoon showers . .

The Mylapore neighbourhood received pre-monsoon showers this past week and the sky has been overcast since Wednesday morning.

While it rained in some areas on the morning of Oct.17 it did not in some other areas.

Rainwater though has begun to stagnate at several streets. One such place was South Mada Street (photo left).

Pools of water formed on roads that have been dug up or are badly maintained or where storn water drain work has been left half-done or abandoned.

The weatherman says that the North East monsoon will set in this week and a normal monsoon is expected through October-November.

But residents dread water stagnation and flooding and the resultant problems caused by flooding.
