Homes and buildings in Chennai’s outskirts are flooded as heavy rains continue.

Chennai: The city received six times the typical amount of rain on Wednesday, and portions of the north of the city are still under water.

In the upcoming days, it’s anticipated that most of Chennai, Kancheepuram, Tiruvallur, Chengelpet, and other northern districts, including Vellore, would see heavy to extremely heavy rainfall.

Residents of Periyar Nagar, in the Kolathur district of Chief Minister M K Stalin, had to wade through knee-deep water as it penetrated homes.

A local resident named Bagavathi Vijaya complained that water was getting into her home and damaging her belongings. Not just rainfall is involved. As she waded through ankle-deep water inside her home, she continued, “It’s also mixed with sewage, It’s unsanitary.

Residents report that it is typical for rainwater to enter their homes after a heavy downpour because the region is low-lying and close to a water body that has been encroached over time. “Water no longer has a natural place to go, but this has been the case for the past 40 years. We need a solution, one of the locals stated.

Waterlogging, Homes Inundated In Chennai Outskirts As Heavy Rains ContinueHomes in Koratur have been flooded by water from a canal that has overflowed. Indira, a tailor who suffered the loss of her television and two-wheeler in last year’s floods, is concerned. ” Knee-deep waterwalked into our house last year. To replace the items we lost in the floods, we had to take out a loan. Although the water is not yet so high, what if it swells? How can we endure?” she questioned.

Jaysingh claims that as water flooded his home, his family was forced to seek sanctuary at the home of a relative. He remarked, “No elected leaders or authorities have come here to observe the situation; they are here when they want votes, but nobody is here to set up the pumping out of the water from our homes.

The Greater Chennai Corporation spent around 700 crore to construct 150 kilometres of stormwater drains over the past six months.

As a result, some pockets in the city’s northern and southern regions collapsed while this stopped flooding in several hotspots, including T Nagar and Seethamal Colony.

M K Stalin, the chief minister, responded to this by saying “During its ten years in office, the AIADMK government has destroyed Chennai and Tamil Nadu. Years will pass before their faults be corrected. However, we are optimistic that we can fix it in one and a half years “added he.

As part of the River Kosasthalayar and Kovalam projects, Greater Chennai Corporation officials claim they are also working on a long-term, 3,000 crore, 750 km long storm water drainage project that, when completed, would address these problems in Chennai’s northern and southern regions.
