As rains relent in Tamil Nadu, incessant downpour batters Andhra Pradesh

Tamilnadu,November 18: The northeast monsoon relented in flood-battered Tamil Nadu today but unleashed its fury on Andhra Pradesh where surging waters washed away part of a vital highway in one of the heaviest rainy spells in southern India in a decade.

Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu reviewed the flood situation in the state where at least six people have been killed in rain-related incidents. Four of the victims are children who were crushed to death when a wall collapsed in Kadapa district on Tuesday.

The unofficial toll is, however, said to be around a dozen.
Officials said the chief minister spoke to district collectors through teleconference and ordered deployment of rescue teams in the affected areas.

The chief minister also said that two helicopters of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) have arrived from Chennai to rescue people stranded in flooded areas of worst-hit Nellore and Chittoor districts, the officials added.
