The state administration of Tamil Nadu has made significant progress in getting things back to normal after severe rains caused power disruptions in some areas of the city. The administration emphasises its determination to restore stability even in the face of issues faced by the populace. This includes intermittent power outages and inadequate mobile network coverage.
According to the most recent report, 70% of mobile networks and 80% of the power supply have already been restored, said the state government. While many people were having trouble communicating and there were power outages, the authorities were actively attempting to resolve these difficulties.

Furthermore, efforts are focused on fixing problems with mobile network connectivity to guarantee that channels of communication are fully functional. The government’s preemptive actions are intended to lessen interruptions and difficulties experienced by inhabitants in places hit by rain, including certain portions of Chennai.
In order to fasten the restoration process and alleviate the impact on the impacted parties, more resources are being deployed. The Chennai Municipal Corporation and the Tamil Nadu Slum Clearance Board (TNSCB) are two of the departments that must coordinate as part of the comprehensive approach.

Cyclone Michaung made landfall on Tuesday, and it brought in intense and nonstop rain in Chennai. The rain continued to fall, but the intensity decreased on Wednesday.
Floods brought in by the storm interrupted daily life and resulted in fatalities and property damage. In a statement released on Tuesday, the Greater Chennai police stated that 17 people had died in various instances related to the city’s flooding. According to the state government on Wednesday, Tamil Nadu has requested ₹5,060 crore in interim relief from the Centre. This is in relation to the damage caused by Cyclone Michaung.
We pray for the citizens of Chennai.
