Chennai floods – List of cancelled trains from Chennai: Chennai floods are causing misery across the city. While Friday has brought respite from rain in most areas, the forecast is that there will be more coming – clearly, it is going to be another night of fear for Chennai rain ravaged citizens.
Rains stop in Chennai on Friday, life still difficult
Life for people in Tamil Nadu’s Chennai continue to be difficult though the rains have stopped in the capital.
On Friday, Many areas in Chennai still remain under water and supplies of essentials was difficult, said residents.
“Water logging continues to be there. The only mercy was that there were no rains,” said Viswanath, a resident.
The water flow in Adyar river has come down and the amount of surplus water was released into the river from the Chembarambakkam lake.
The Southern Railways have announced special trains to Tirunelveli, Rameswaram and Howrah from Chennai Beach station.
The power supply was restored in the areas where water has receded, but it was still cut in many other places.
However, communication lines — landline and mobile — continue to disrupt.
In heavily flooded areas like Mudichur and Tambaram, people were looking up to the skies praying for the rains to stop, and for relief materials.
On Wednesday night the steady and continuous rainfall kept people in Tamil Nadu’s capital awake due to concerns over the rising water levels and threat of floods, as is clear from Revathi Vasan’s, resident of west Mambalam, response. “Water came into our apartment and we had to shift to our neighbour’s house on the first floor”. Another family living on the ground floor has also shifted with us, Revathi added. While the residents are living in fear, others heading into Chennai or out of it are facing a set of their own problems. Here aside from the human interest story, we provide an Indian Railways trains cancelled in Chennai list (at bottom of page) as well as Chennai Corporation helplines as on Friday:
“It indeed is alarming,” Chennai-based lawyer Elangovan told IANS, adding that thousands of people were fleeing the city that has been virtually cut off after highways and railway tracks came under water and the airport was ordered shut till December 6.
“The situation in Tamil Nadu is alarming. It is not an exaggeration to say that Chennai has turned into an island,” Rajnath Singh said.
“I have had no drinking water and milk since yesterday (Wednesday),” Harish Rao told IANS from his house in south Chennai.
Surinder Singh, a doctor from Delhi who was stuck in Chennai, told IANS: “It looks like the entire city is under one foot of water. In some places, the water level is more. Flood water has reached almost every locality, including posh areas. Everyone on the streets is barefoot.”
People living at higher levels were opening up their doors to help the strangers.
“The situation was bad and the water level was increasing,” Jenson, resident of Sunambu Kolathur of Kanchipuram district said.
Even market areas like Anna Nagar in the city could not escape from flooding.
In many areas people made shift boats by tying up empty barrels to reach safer places.
The airport was closed Tuesday night, and could not start operations due to water logging in the runway. Several passengers were stranded at the airport, railway and bus stations.
There was no power supply in many areas of Chennai, and mobile phone services were also affected due to the rains.
Meanwhile hotels were getting frantic calls from residents and stranded passengers for accommodation.
“We have couple of families staying with us as they were affected by water logging,” a hotel official said.
“In Villivakkam area the water level was up to my chest. I had to wade through the water for couple of kms and then catch a bus to my work place in Teynampet,” Suresh who works with a private sector company said.
It was raining opportunities for taxi and auto-rickshaw drivers who were charging sky high rates to ply short distances.
A taxi driver charged Rs 4,500 to transport three persons from airport to a hotel in Anna Salai.
Meanwhile, army and navy teams were called to carry out rescue efforts.
Schools and colleges were closed in the city.
The rains stopped on Wednesday morning and provided some respite to the people, but the weather office has forecast heavy rains for next three days.
During the last spell of rains, around 180 people lost their lives in the four district of Chennai, Kanchipuram, Cuddalore and Thiruvallur.
