Millions in Tamil Nadu grappled with lack of water and other basic essentials on Thursday as the heaviest rains in a century and floods left 269 people dead, thousands homeless and turned Chennai into a sea of water.. Chennai suffered unprecedented
destruction, with water overflowing from rivers and reservoirs seeping into scores of apartments and houses, markets, shopping malls, offices and educational institutions, unsettling life like never before. Though there was respite from the rains and the army,
navy and air force and the National Disaster Response Force worked hard to rescue the marooned and provide relief, the water level did not show major signs of receding. Residents complained about lack of medicines, milk, potable water, vegetables and public
transport. Some 1.64 lakh people were housed in 460 camps in Chennai, Cuddalore, Thiruvallur and Kanchipuram districts. Many thousands also shifted to others' houses after water entered theirs. In several places, power supply and communication lines were down,
adding to the misery.
