That is dreadful, Tramway.

Hoping you have got your home back together now.

Is that LPG cylinder floating? I guess they would do, at least if empty...

And surely our government does not compensate us for the damage in any way, does it?
You'll probably get fined for damaging that floating gas cylinder!

Yes it is the LPG cylinder, Infact the water level was very high. This pictures were taken 2 days after the rain when I opened the house. Later I put the cylinder on the slab.

Yes for sure, the Govt. only target us for milking money.

You know what I was really became angry when I heard from the local FM channel about the Sembarambakkam Lake Executive engineer's interview. The opening of the lake caused the actual flood in the southern side of the city and He was giving interview saying He opened the lake thinking that the rain will continue and the lake will be damaged due to excessive water income, however immediately after he ordered the crew to open the shutters of lake, seems the rain stopped. Subsequently he claimed that the lake is now emptied and Chennai needs another rain for filling the lake which is the direct source for drinking water

Had I not seen these pictures, I wouldn't have believed. There must have been heavy damages to people's household. Is there any provision in insurance to cover such happenings?

Did you get the government's Rs2000?

That really is crazy about the lake. It is one thing to allow water out to control its level, and another to empty it, although in the past we have heard of areas flooding because private persons breached a lake to protect their own encroachments.

Others may not have any reason to follow the news in UK, but those that have will have seen the effect of the snow on the country over the last week or so. It happens regularly, but not often (like this was, I think, the worst for 18 years) and, quite apart from the reasonable argument that no-one is going to budget and plan every year for something that only happens once in twenty, UK is never prepared for snow. Chennai, it seems, is never prepared for rain.

What maddens and saddens me is that the year will be spent with the government (whichever; they both do it, this is not party-political) talking about how they will be prepared next time --- and the next time turns out to be worse than the last.

Sorry... rant over...

My colleague's 10 month old Swift Vdi which was submerged and badly affected in rain. He has not started the car and it has been towed by the dealer service centre guys . Service centre guys adviced him it just require to change the oil & diesel which might have mixed with rain water. After oil change also car was not getting started and they were unable to find/fix out the issues. Then they started changing ECU,Key set,EPS kit....etc . In between their R& D they have replaced almost all electronic parts and bill was 1.6 Lacs.

After 45-50 days my friend took it from dealer service center to MSM and they resolved the issue in 1 week it seems and paid another 20K .

Oh yeah.. that 2000 is actually 1% of my total loss during this flood and I was denied for the flood relief as I'm a tax payer and higher income person as per the Ration card.

Yeah... It was restored with the expense of 7K as the crank bearings damaged due to excessive water in the engine block.

Now see this missing picture... my submerged JAWA... This was restored by self with 800 rupees expense.
