Many low lying areas in the city witnessed artificial flooding and water entered many compounds also. Major areas that saw inundation were Kodialguthu, Kottara Chowki, Adyar, Yekkuru and other areas. Most of the roads in the city were ankle deep in water due to either drains being full or lack of drains.
