Chennai Latest: Rain Stops, But New Areas Flooded; Interior Areas Cut; Passengers Stranded On Railway Station And Airport

Chennai Flood  In Chennai, floods surged the day after the rain stopped.  The rain water found its way to the drinking water reservoirs and the authorities opened the sluice gates letting out the water into the rivers.

The water outflown from Chembarakkan reservoir was at a flow rate of 20,000 cusecs and was feeding into Adyar River. Many people along the Adyar River bank have been stranded due to floods on the river. The residents, who are mostly slum dwellers living in Saidapet, Manapakkan and Kotturpuram, have been evacuated to relief centers like marriage halls and schools.

What is happening right now?

When the rain had stopped on Wednesday morning, it had provided relief to the residents. However, their relief soon turned into panic when the water level started increasing. It gradually increased from knee-deep to chest high. Kasimedu fishermen who stay in north Chennai have brought their dinghies to Kottupuram and Nandanam to evacuate those affected.

  1. I’m the co-founder of JustCBD company (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently seeking to broaden my wholesale side of business. I am hoping anybody at targetdomain can help me ! I thought that the most effective way to do this would be to connect to vape stores and cbd stores. I was hoping if someone could suggest a reliable site where I can get CBD Shops Business Contact Details I am presently reviewing creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. On the fence which one would be the most suitable selection and would appreciate any assistance on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?

  6. Can I just say what a relief to discover a person that really knows what they are discussing online. You actually know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people have to read this and understand this side of the story. It’s surprising you’re not more popular given that you certainly possess the gift.
