As the heavy spell led to fears of a repeat of the December 2015 deluge, the AIADMK government sought to allay any such fears. It asked people not to pay heed to rumours on social media that many lakes and reservoirs around the city were about to surplus and that the water would be let out. "Do not spread and believe in rumours #work from home and 3rd November leave is 2 avoid traffic jams and to avoid any untoward incident" said a tweet by the Tamil Nadu State Disaster Management agency.
