Chennai, Nov 1 : Cyclonic storm Nilam, which threatened to hit the Chennai coast, spared the metropolis and  made landfall near Mamallapuram, about 60 km south from here on Wednesday evening.


 
Four persons were reported to have died during the day in different parts of the State, but a Revenue department official clarified that Kancheepuram district, where the storm crossed the coast between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m., did not report even a single death.

Nilam evoked fears of large-scale destruction among the people in coastal districts in north Tamil Nadu.
