Chennai people are crying as the whole city is surrounded with water. Heavy rain for the past ten days lashed brought the city to a virtual standstill. All the roads are waterlogged and people cannot use any vehicle on the road. Even walking on the road is risky. The rail traffic is hit.
There was no current supply in many areas. The schools and colleges remain shut and the students are watching the TV news very seriously. The Army, Air Force, The Coast Guard and the public have joined hands in rescue operations.
Arrangement has been made to air-drop drinking water and food in worst-hit areas. Boats and helicopters carried people to safe places. IT companies have given employees the option of flexible work shift and work from home.
We have to learn the lesson to safeguard the city in future from such natural calamities, as there will be heavy rain and storm in every November.
