Chennai flood worsened by opening dam without warning: DMK

Chennai: The release of water from Chembarambakkam reservoir in the outskirts of Chennai without warning made the flood that ravaged Chennai last week much worse, alleged DMK spokesperson TS Ilangovan. Talking to Mathrubhumi News, he demanded a judicial inquiry into the lapse. The government ignored the warning of meteorological department and released 35,000 cusecs of water without warning at one go. The MET had warned of the probability of heavy rains which could cause floods, but the state government did nothing about it, Ilangovan alleged.
