Tamil Nadu: Due to substantial downpour in the region, the Vellore district administration has suspended classes for students from grades 1 to 5 on September 21, said the officials. 

Several districts in Tamil Nadu experienced heavy rainfall.

The impact of the heavy rainfall was evident on the Chennai-Bengaluru National Highway in Konavattam, Vellore, where waterlogging occurred on Thursday.
