Notably, torrential rain triggered by Cyclone Michaung has wreaked havoc upon Tamil Nadu, with Chennai, Chengalpattu, Kancheepuram, Nagapattinam, Cuddalore, and Thiruvallur districts bearing the brunt of the downpour. Most parts of Chennai are currently submerged in water, with heavy inundation in low-lying areas, even as civic agency personnel were involved in clearing the stagnant water. In some areas, cars were seen floating on waterlogged roads.
Tamil actors Suriya and Karthi have announced an initial donation of Rs 10 lakhs that will go to helping in any kind of relief aid required. The distribution is said to be done through their fan clubs, News 18 reported.
