Chennai recovers after cyclone Michaung

CHENNAI, Dec 6: Activities in many parts of the capital of Tamil Nadu, India are slowly returning to normal after a setback following the floods and havoc caused by cyclone Michaung here earlier this week.

In a phone call to Weekly Echo, Rama, who lives in one of the city centre areas, said the airport which was flooded had temporarily stopped incoming and outgoing flights but had resumed its operations on Tuesday.

“The ground floor of my house was completely flooded but the waters have receded and now the clean up and assessment of damages have started.

“Many living in the lower areas saw their houses in about six feet of water. For the first time, the cyclone seemed to have stopped right on top of the city and was not moving anywhere and that seemed to have brought a lot of rain water and the floods.

“The cyclone has headed further north to Andra Pradesh and things are returning to normal,” he said.
