                         Incessant Rain Affects Normal Life in Puducherry; Schools, Colleges Closed

Normal life was hit in Puducherry on Monday and educational institutions were closed due to incessant rains under the influence of a cyclonic circulation in the Bay of Bengal.

Puducherry, which has been receiving rains since the onset of the north-east monsoon, registered 6.1 cm rainfall during the last 24 hours ending 8.30 AM on Monday, PWD sources told PTI. Karaikal registered 4.8 cm rainfall in the same period.

Control rooms were operating at the PWD office, Police and Health Departments to attend to any rain-related issues.

Water level in Bahoor and Oussudu tanks, the two major water bodies in Puducherry, has reached full capacity, the sources said.

The discharge into Sankarabarani river was copious and the river was in a spate, sources added.

Summary

Puducherry region experienced heavy rainfall during the past few days under the influence of north-east monsoon, 2021. The major lakes and rivers flooded the adjacent and low lying area due to heavy rain fall and excess water released from the nearby dams situated in Tamil Nadu. The people residing along river banks and low-lying area were evacuated and accommodated in safe shelters. Now as per the IMD bulletin, a cyclonic circulation lies over southwest and adjoining Bay of Bengal and extends up to mid-tropospheric levels. Under its influence, low pressure area is likely to form over south west Bay of Bengal during next 24 hours.

Challenge

The torrential rain has hit Puducherry and many made as homeless. Many lost their household articles. Many people need their houses get repaired. Since, Puducherry is low-lying area, it is a big challenge to evacuate water. The prices of vegetables and other essential commodities have gone up to a maximum level.

Solution

Prime Trust is collaborating with other non-profits and government departments in helping people with grocery and food packets. At this moment, we can help people to repair houses in the community.

Long-Term Impact

Supporting people to rebuild their houses and help them to procure household things which were lost will be a great support at this moment.
