Heavy Rainfall 1
At this time when it is snowing in the mountains. Winter has started in the plains. An ominous sign is coming from the sky in the form of heavy rain, due to which the time and method of rain is changing with every passing day, week and month. For several days, weeks and months it does not rain a single drop, and when it occurs suddenly it is extremely strong and torrential. It is having an impact on cities, villages and farms. This time the city of Chennai has come under the grip.
In the capital of Tamil Nadu, Chennai has become a flood situation due to the rain for three days. The Meteorological Department has predicted heavy rains in Chennai for the next two days as well. Chennai has received 41 per cent more rainfall than the average due to the North East Monsoon. The gates of three dams have to be opened. 4 teams of NDRF are engaged in the rescue work. The situation can be gauged from this. Schools in Chennai and surrounding areas have been closed for two days. Most government offices are also closed.
This picture and the situation is proving that the weather is changing. The trend of rain is changing. Which is not auspicious because this calamity is not limited to Chennai. Due to the northeast monsoon, there is a possibility of heavy rain in the coastal areas of Andhra and Tamil Nadu till November 11.
6 year record broken
The Meteorological Department is also worried about heavy rains in Tamil Nadu and Andhra. At present, it is beyond comprehension why monsoon is still a ‘killer’ in many parts of the country. Why has there been devastation in the cities due to rain and floods. Is it the changing mood of the weather or is there some lack in town planning. Today we will also understand this thing because it has rained so much from the sky in Chennai that the record of 6 years has been broken.
Water on railway track. Water at intersections. water on the streets. Water in the streets. Water inside the house. Water outside the house. And some vehicles are submerged in this water. Somewhere a car worth thousands of kilos is flowing like a straw. In November, due to the monsoon rains, there has been such an attack that schools, colleges, houses, shops are all submerged. From the pictures it looks as if there is a sky over the head of this city. But not a single part of the land is being found by searching.
There is water all around and there is devastation caused by water. A city like Nnai has become an ocean. In the heavy rains of the last three days, the rain has wreaked havoc on the city.
It started on Saturday night. When people opened their eyes on Sunday morning, rain water was accumulating everywhere. In many places there was water till the knees and at some places till the waist. From cars to bikes were seen submerged. In 2015, Chennai witnessed the biggest destruction in 100 years due to floods. It is no less than that.
There is waist-deep water on the road and small iron containers are floating like paper boats. Same is the case with vehicles. Not one or two dozens of vehicles are flowing in the middle of the road. No one is going to stop them and no one is going to get them out of the water. There are vehicles that are being flown like boats. As the next picture is visible. The situation is looking worse. The storm of influx is visible even inside the houses.
Most serious situation in these areas
The worst situation due to rain is of Perambur Barrack Road, Oteri Bridge and Padi. Chief Minister MK Stalin himself had reached these areas and took stock of the situation. Stalin has ordered the District Collector to keep an eye on the condition of the reservoirs.
But still the biggest question is whether people will continue to suffer year after year due to unseasonal rains in Chennai or will there be a permanent solution to this problem.
