    As per a Hindu report, the Greater Chennai Corporation (GCC) Commissioner J. Radhakrishnan announced a comprehensive plan on Monday, July 8, 2024, to manage the challenges posed by intense monsoon rains in the city.
    Chennai has been experiencing high rainfall over short periods; for instance, Sholinganallur received 12.5 cm of rain within one to two hours, while North Chennai recorded 9 cm during the same period in June. Despite the heavy rains, all subway paths within the GCC’s jurisdiction have remained operational. Rainwater is being efficiently drained into the four major outflow routes: Kosasthalaiyar, Cooum, Adyar, and Kovalam. However, certain low-lying areas face temporary waterlogging during the rains.
    To address these issues, the GCC has identified 40 low-lying areas through disaster management initiatives. Water accumulating in these areas is promptly pumped out using motor pumps. Additionally, ongoing projects by other departments within the Corporation contribute to waterlogging and slushy roads in wards 186, 187, 2, and 7. Task forces have been established to swiftly address and remove water accumulation.
