High tidal waves reported on Tamil Nadu coast

Bay of Bengal
Chennai, Aug. 4 (PTI): High tidal waves were reported on Friday along Tamil Nadu's coast, but the weather office here said they were "normal" as there was no significant weather phenomenon over the Bay of Bengal.

As the waters were rough and the surging waves reached a height of seven feet, fishermen stayed away from the sea.

In the tourist town of Kanniyakumari, boat services to the Vivekananda memorial rock and the 133-foot Tiruvallavur statue were suspended yesterday morning in the wake of high tidal waves.
