A week after heavy rains and flooding brought India’s fourth-largest city to a standstill, killing dozens of people and leaving thousands more stranded, Chennai limps back to normalcy now with no fresh Rain And fall In River water levels.

The Water level rise in Chennai is due to two major reasons. The lakes, Chennai got plenty of lakes, but most of these lakes are shallow or people are making them shallow by disposing of waste. Chennai corporation needs to create a master plan for making these interconnected lakes deeper.

In Chennai, rainfall for the month of November has already totaled more than 635 mm (25 inches) which is more than double the normal rainfall of the entire month. The existing drainage systems are incompetent. Chennai need to construct more efficient drainage systems along with a massive interlinked rain harvesting facilities throughout the city. All the lakes are overflowing, some of the lakes even kissed the bridges above them. You got to give it to the hard working people of Chennai Corporation for working day and night to pump the water from the subways and underpasses. Now, most of the subways are commutable.

Thanks to the volunteers, without them even the state and the central institutions would have failed. Given the massive loss of lives (at 269) and property (at Rs 1,500 crore), Chennai could not have taken the blow, unless for its untold heroes.

My house got flooded in the rains. Mainly because of the lake which is 1/2 kilometer away, When lake is full and its banks are broken water flows with such force and volume, it gets people by surprise.

Thanks to all the kind hearts who helped, City is back to normal now.
