Parts of Chennai still in deep Waters


Chennai, Dec 14: Even after a full week of efforts to bring Chennai back to normalcy following the devastating rains, many of its residents still have to wade through sewage water when they step out of their homes.

In many pockets of North Chennai, there’s still no power supply.

The civic authorities in Chennai say that they have pumped out the water and will soon address the drinking water issue. Many children have taken ill in the aftermath of the floods due to unhygienic living conditions say the residents.  But the government has denied any outbreak of disease.

Social workers say there’s a strong need for psychological support. The two consecutive floods and the loss of property and belongings have created fear and worry about the people’s future.

Since October 1, over 350 people have died and 17.64 lakh people have become homeless as the worst rain in nearly a century battered the state.
