Chennai, this November, has recorded its highest rainfall in 10 years. News reports say close to 60 people have lost their lives this month. Livelihood of thousands of people has been affected.
How prepared is Chennai for such bursts of rain in the future? Are all the basic amenities/checks in place? How are other states which receive much higher amount of rain annually able to cope with it? These are questions that the TN authorities need to ponder upon. Personally, it was appalling to see pictures of subways filled with 12 feet of water.
We’ll leave the introspection for a later day.
Today, I share a few pics on Chennai rains in the form of tweets, from different parts of the city.
