Tamil Nadu has been experiencing heavy rainfall since yesterday and several parts of Chennai have suffered damage owing to the torrential downpour and strong winds.

A portion of the ceiling at the VR mall collapsed near the escalator at around 5 pm on Thursday evening. Some of the visitors were seen hurrying down the escalator steps in order to avoid any accident. Speaking about the incident, an official at the mall said, “Due to heavy waterlogging on the roof, the false ceiling collapsed. All the visitors are safe. The roof was repaired within two hours and the mall remained open for the public.”

“There was a huge sound and the false ceiling came tearing down. All the visitors ran towards the ground floor. We could not even step out because it was raining heavily. Rainwater entered the mall. However, the situation was brought under control within a couple of hours,” the official added.
