Rain reminds us of the horrific floods of 2015

Heavy rain in Chennai has reminded the people of the city about the horrific floods of 2015. The floods of 2015 had submerged the entire city. The situation was so bad that even the Army, Navy and Air Force had to take to the streets. However, even after 6 years, the administration did not learn any lesson from the 2015 floods.

All projects and planning have been exposed

In the metropolitan city of the country, this kind of situation is exposing the smart city project and urban planning. Every time after heavy rains, the government gives all assurances due to waterlogging, but the pictures of the ground reality are different. The rains in the last 24 hours have created a flood situation in the entire city.

Why is it raining heavily?

Northeast Monsoon is going on in Tamil Nadu at this time. Every year at this time heavy rains occur in the coastal areas of Tamil Nadu and the delta region. Even Tamil Nadu depends on this monsoon for 75 per cent of its water. In such a situation, there is heavy rain this year under this monsoon.

Why did things get worse?

Due to heavy rains, the shutters of Poondi, Pullal and Chembarambakkam lakes have been opened. These are the reservoirs, which provide drinking water to the city. But due to heavy rains, there is no overflow of water in these reservoirs, so it has been decided to release the water. With the release of water, the situation looks direr, as this water has now entered the city and has entered people’s homes in low-lying areas.

School closed for 2 days

Heavy to very heavy rain has been warned in many districts of North Tamil Nadu including Chennai. Due to waterlogging in low-lying areas, water has entered houses, roads have been submerged in water, streets have been flooded and crops have been submerged in the fields. Given the situation for the next two days, the school college has also been kept closed for the next two days.
