Meanwhile, Actor Vishal had come forward pointing out that the Chennai Corporation was not properly involved in the flood. "ear Ms Priya Rajan (Mayor of Chennai) and to one & all other officers of Greater Chennai Corporation including the Commissioner. Hope you all are safe & sound with your families & water especially drainage water not entering your houses & most importantly hope you have unconditional supply of food & electricity. Just checking as a Voter coz as Citizens living in the same city as you are, we are not in the same position. I wonder if the entire storm water drain project was meant for Singapore or Chennai? , Vishal X wrote.

 

Meanwhile, severe cyclone Michaung is moving northwards from Chennai and will touch the Andhra Pradesh coast tomorrow before noon. The India Meteorological Department has predicted that heavy rain and wind will continue in the state. The officials said that the power would be restored two hours after the rain stops completely. Around 162 relief camps have been opened in Chennai.
