Record-breaking amounts of heavy rain has been falling in several parts of Tamil Nadu, and many areas in Chennai have been completely inundated. This has severely disrupted flights, as well as train and bus services.
The situation is so bad that the Indian Army has been called in for rescue and relief operations in Chennai.
This means that all connecting roads to the cargo complex have been badly damaged due by the water, and the Customs Ground Handling Area has also been flooded
Unofficially, Air Traffic Control state that many flights are being re-routed to other airports.
We will update further when we have more news.
