One of the major reasons for flooding in Chennai...
The reason behind the flooding in Chennai wasn't exactly the heavy rainfall alone. The delay in opening the Chembarambakkam flood gates significantly contributed to the flooding on the banks of the river Adyar, and it was entirely man-made. In a report that hits out at the Tamil Nadu’s top bureaucracy, The Times of India has pointed out that officials waited for the nod from the chief secretary to open the sluice gates. “The state administration maintained that the release from the reservoir into Adyar river was only 33,500 cusecs (cubic feet per second; 1 cubic ft is 28.3 litres of water), which is the maximum capacity of the gates, from December 1 night onwards. But the actual release was more than double that, and nobody has any idea how much it was because water was overflowing from Chembarambakkam after the reservoir reached its full capacity of 24 feet. The problem was compounded as Athannur lake breached, releasing about 5,000 cusecs into the Adyar," a highly placed source in the PWD told TOI.

Parts of Kolathur, Annanagar, Sterling road areas, have power restored. Mambalam, Mylapore, and TTK road which were hugely impacted, water is reported to be slowly receding.
