NEW DELHI -- The low pressure area now centered over southwest Bay of Bengal adjoining north Tamil Nadu- South Andhra Pradesh coasts is continuing to cause heavy-to-very-heavy rain in Tamil Nadu and at isolated places over south coastal Andhra Pradesh, Rayalaseema, and South Interior Karnataka today.

Fishermen have been advised not to venture into the sea along & off north Tamil Nadu, Puducherry and Andhra Pradesh coasts as strong wind speed reaching 35­45 kmph gusting to 55 kmph would prevail along and off the coasts today.

The Indian Meteorological Department has issued a warning for very heavy or extremely heavy rains for today in these regions.

It is predicted that heavy rain would occur tomorrow at isolated places over south Coastal Andhra Pradesh, Rayalaseema, Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry.

Heavy to very heavy rains are expected for the next two days also at isolated places over Coastal Andhra Pradesh.

The heavy floods have so far claimed 95 lives in Tamil Nadu.
