Chennai Gets Heaviest Rains, Flooding But Reservoir Water Levels Low..
Chennai and surrounding areas received one of the heaviest rainfalls in years. Several areas have already recorded 100 millimeters while others 150 millimeters or more of rainfall. Both coastal and interior areas are likely to get even more rainfall.
Many areas in the city and surrounding areas are flooded or in danger of getting flooded.
In the midst of all this heavy monsoon, several crucial reservoirs (or water tanks) have only between 10% and 30% of their water storage capacity. These water tanks are what supply water year round… provided they have enough water?
