The 2015 South Indian floods resulted from heavy rainfall generated by the annual northeast monsoon in November–December 2015. They affected the Coromandel Coast region of the South Indian states of Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh, and the union territory of Puducherry, with Tamil Nadu and the city of Chennai particularly hard-hit.[12] More than 500 people were killed[1][2][3][4][5] and over 18 lakh (1.8 million) people were displaced.[13] With estimates of damages and losses ranging from nearly ₹200 billion (US$3 billion) to over ₹1 trillion (US$15 billion),[7][8][14][15][16][17] the floods were the costliest to have occurred in 2015, and were among the costliest natural disasters of the year.[18] The flooding has been attributed to the 2014–16 El Niño event.


Geographical and meteorological explanation[edit]

From October to December each year, a very large area of south India, including Tamil Nadu, the coastal regions of Andhra Pradesh and the union territory of Puducherry, receives up to 60 percent of its annual rainfall from the northeast monsoon (or winter monsoon). The northeast monsoon is the result of the annual gradual retreat of monsoonal rains from northeastern India. Unlike during the regular monsoon, rainfall during the northeast monsoon is sporadic, but typically far exceeds the amount produced by the regular monsoon by up to 90 percent. This excessive rainfall can be exacerbated by an El Nino year, which 2015 was.[19]

The coastal districts of Andhra Pradesh usually bear the brunt of heavy rains that occur during the northeast monsoon; with numerous river systems and wetlands, Puducherry and eastern Tamil Nadu are prone to flooding.[19] The city of Chennai alone experienced five major floods between 1943 and 2005, with the 1943, 1978 and 2005 floods causing particularly severe damage.[20] In addition, unplanned and often illegal urban development has led to many wetlands and natural sinks being built over; this, along with ageing civic infrastructure and poorly designed drainage systems, has resulted in an increased frequency of severe flooding.[19]

The weather systems[edit]

On 8 November 2015, during the annual cyclone season, a low pressure area consolidated into a depression and slowly intensified into a deep depression before crossing the coast of Tamil Nadu near Puducherry the following day. Because of land interaction and high vertical wind shear, the system weakened into a well-marked low pressure area over north Tamil Nadu on 10 November.[21] The system brought very heavy rainfall over the coastal and the north interior districts of Tamil Nadu. On 15 November, well-marked low pressure area moved northwards along the Tamil Nadu coast, dropping huge amounts of rainfall over coastal Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh with 24‑hour totals peaking at 370 mm in Ponneri. Chennai International Airport recorded 266 mm of rainfall in 24 hours. On 28–29 November, another system developed and arrived over Tamil Nadu on 30 November, bringing additional rain and flooding. The system dropped 490 mm of rainfall at Tambaram in 24 hours starting 8:30 am on 1 December. Very heavy rains led to flooding across the entire stretch of coast from Chennai to Cuddalore.

The Floods[edit]

Chennai and Tamil Nadu[edit]

Between 9–10 November 2015, Neyveli received 483 mm (19.0 in) of rainfall; rains continued to lash Cuddalore, Chidambaram and Chennai.[21] Continuing rains led to low-lying parts of Chennai becoming inundated by 13 November, resulting in the evacuation of over 1000 people from their homes.[12] The flooding in Chennai city was worsened by years of illegal development and inadequate levels of flood preparedness.[22] Much of the city remained flooded on 17 November, though rainfall had largely ceased.[23] Chennai received 1,049 mm (41.3 in) of rainfall in November, the highest recorded since November 1918 when 1,088 mm (42.8 in) in of rainfall was recorded.[24][25] The flooding in Chennai city was described as the worst in a century.[26] The continued rains led to schools and colleges remaining closed across Puducherry and Chennai, Kancheepuram and Tiruvallur districts in Tamil Nadu, and fishermen were warned against sailing because of high waters and rough seas.[27]

Though rainfall from the earlier low pressure system ended on 24 November, another system developed on 29 November, bringing additional rain and the Indian Meteorological Department predicted heavy rainfall over Tamil Nadu until the end of the week.[28][29] On 1 December, heavy rains led to inundation in many areas of Chennai.[30] By afternoon, power supplies were suspended to 60% of the city while several city hospitals stopped functioning.[31] The same day, Chief Minister of Tamil NaduJayalalithaa announced that, because of the continued flooding and rains, half-yearly school examinations originally scheduled for 7 December would be postponed until the first week in January.[32] For the first time since its founding in 1878, the major newspaper The Hindu did not publish a print edition on 2 December, as workers were unable to reach the press building.[33] The Southern Railways cancelled major train services and Chennai International Airport was closed until 6 December.[31]

Chennai was officially declared a disaster area on the evening of 2 December.[26] At the MIOT Hospital, 14 patients died after power and oxygen supplies failed. With a letup in rainfall, floodwaters gradually began to recede in Chennai on 4 December, though 40 percent of the city's districts remained submerged and safe food and drinking water remained in short supply.[34] Though relief efforts were well underway across most of the area by 3 December, the lack of any coordinated relief response in North Chennai forced thousands of its residents to evacuate on their own.[35] As intermittent rains returned, thousands of displaced residents from Chennai, Kancheepuram and Tiruvallur districts attempted to flee the stricken region by bus or train and travel to their family homes.[36] Chennai International Airport was partly reopened for cargo flights on 5 December, with passenger flights scheduled to resume from the following morning.[37] By 6 December, rescue efforts had largely concluded and relief efforts intensified, with the Chennai Corporation beginning to disburse relief packages.[38] Mobile, banking and power services were gradually restored; fuel and food supplies were reaching their destinations, the airport had fully reopened and rail services slowly resumed. Many city neighbourhoods, however, remained flooded with some lacking basic necessities due to the uncoordinated distribution of relief materials. With the city slowly beginning to recover, state and national health officials remained watchful against disease outbreaks, warning that conditions were right for epidemics of water-borne illnesses to occur.[39] Chennai Corporation officials reported at least 57,000 homes in the city had suffered structural damage, mostly those of working class pincodes. State housing boards said they would conduct safety inspections of both public and residential buildings.[40] After being closed for the past month, schools and colleges across the affected districts began to reopen from 14 December.[41] Relief operations were largely wound up by 19 December.[42]

South of Chennai, heavy rains and flooding persisted into the second week of December. In Kancheepuram district, Chengalpattu, Nandivaram- Guduvanchery, Perungalathur, Tambaram, Mudichur and Anakaputhur were inundated in floodwaters up to 7 meters deep by 5 December, which washed away roads and severed rail links; 98 people from the district were reported to have died.[43] During 4–5 December, parts of Villupuram and Tiruvarur districts received up to 10 centimeters of rain, while some towns in Cuddalore district saw up to nine centimeters.[44] Flood alerts were broadcast to 12 villages in the neighbourhood of the Tirumurthy dam in Tirupur district on 7 December, as the dam was likely to reach capacity within two days; the residents of those villages were urged to evacuate.[45] Due to rainfall in Tirunelveli district, all of its dams had reached or were approaching full capacity by 7 December, forcing local authorities to discharge thousands of cusecs of water from reservoirs and causing the Thamirabarani River to reach flood stage.[46] Torrential rains inundated hundreds of acres of paddy fields in Thanjavur, Tiruvarur and Nagapattinam districts, and caused residential areas to flood by 8 December. Large parts of Thanjavur city were marooned by rising waters, while several houses collapsed under the brunt of rainfall in Kumbakonam and Veppathoor.[47]

After Chennai district, Cuddalore district was among those most severely affected by the flooding. Six of the district's 13 blocks suffered extensive damage during the floods in November.[48] The resumption of heavy rainfall from 1 December again inundated the Cuddalore municipality and the district, displacing tens of thousands of people.[49] Rains continued through 9 December.[50] Despite the state government and individuals sending rescue teams and tonnes of relief materials to the district, thousands of those affected continued to lack basic supplies due to inadequate distribution efforts; this resulted in several relief lorries being stopped and looted by survivors.[50][51] Large swaths of Cuddalore city and the district remained inundated as of 10 December, with thousands of residents marooned by floodwaters and over 60,000 hectares of farmland inundated; over 30,000 people had been evacuated to relief camps.[50][52]

The state government reported preliminary flood damages of ₹8,481 crore (US$1 billion), and requested ₹2,000 crore (US$306 million) for immediate relief efforts.[14] On 5 December, a senior state revenue official said the state's official estimates of flood-related losses in November alone exceeded ₹9,800 crore (US$2 billion); he added the catastrophic flooding thus far in December could escalate total losses to well over ₹100,000 crore (US$15 billion).[7] On 9 December, Chief Minister Jayalalithaa wrote to Prime Minister Modi, requesting him to immediately declare the "unprecedented, catastrophic and cataclysmic" flooding as a "national calamity."[53] Aon Benfield, a major UK-based reinsurance broker, classified the floods as the costliest to have occurred in 2015, and the eight-costliest natural disaster of the year.[18]

On 13 December, the state government requested the central government to release a total of ₹10,250 crore (US$1.53 billion) towards relief and rehabilitation efforts, including ₹5,000 crore (US$766 million) for a housing project to accommodate 50,000 displaced people, ₹750 crore (US$115 million) to rehouse another 50,000 people who had formerly lived in huts destroyed by the floods and ₹4,500 crore (US$689 million) to rebuild damaged roads, drains, tap water pipes and sewers in urban localities.[54] On 22 December, the government further revised its estimates, requesting ₹17,431.51 crore (US$2.63 billion) in addition to the ₹8481 crore previously requested for the flood damage sustained in November, for a total of ₹25,912.51 crore (US$3.91 billion).[9]

In January 2016, the state government issued a detailed final statement which said 421 people in Tamil Nadu had died of flood-related causes between 28 October, when the first monsoonal rains had arrived in earnest, through 31 December;[note 1][1][3][4][6][29][55][56] however, relief workers alone had reported hundreds more who were missing, and various police reports had placed the death toll in the Chennai region alone at over 500 as of mid-December. Chennai-area morgues and crematoria were reported to have been "piled up" with bodies as floodwaters began receding in the second week of December, while all of the still-functioning area cemeteries had recorded over three times the usual number of burials, up from a normal 25–30 burials per week.[2][55] According to the Tamil Nadu government, 30.42 lakh (3.042 million) families had suffered total or partial damage to their dwellings. 3,82,768 lakh hectares of crops had been lost due to flooding, including over 3.47 lakh hectares of agricultural crops and 35,471 hectares of horticultural crops; roughly 98,000 livestock animals and poultry had died.[1]


Puducherry sustained relatively minor damage in November as the depression largely remained offshore; some trees were downed and several banana and sugarcane plantations at Kuttchipalayam were severely damaged.[57] Puducherry reported receiving 55.7 mm of rainfall over the 24-hour period from 14–15 November. Water entered several houses in low-lying areas, while three houses collapsed in Uppalam. Mudaliarpet, parts of Rainbow Nagar, Muthialpet, Krishna Nagar and Lawspet Main Road were inundated, along with portions of roadways near Karuvadikkuppam and the Shivaji statue on the ECR, causing traffic problems. Several roads were badly damaged, hindering motorists, while some members of the public took the initiative to begin clearing areas of water without directions from the government. Chief Minister N Rangasamy stated the official machinery had been readied in preparation for any flooding, while local administration officials closed all schools and colleges in Puducherry and Karaikal districts on 16 November, anticipating further rainfall.[58]

On 24 November, it was reported over 4800 hectares of farmland had been flooded, though it remained too early to determine the extent of crop damage.[59] On 26 November, the union territorial government submitted a preliminary estimate of damages to the central government, requesting it to release an initial ₹182.45 crore (US$28 million) for relief; based on preliminary estimates, Chief Minister Rangasamy reported losses as follows: public works (₹120.89 crore (US$19 million)), municipal administration (₹48.66 crore (US$7 million)), agriculture (₹7.2 crore (US$1 million)), power (₹3.14 crore (US$480,922)), revenue (₹2.48 crore (US$379,837)) and animal husbandry (₹7.19 lakh (US$11,012)).[15] On 1 December, Rangasamy requested an additional ₹100 crore (US$15 million) for "immediate interim relief".[60] At the start of December, Puducherry reported receiving 83.4 centimeters of rain during November alone, as opposed to a normal average of 76.7 centimeters during the entire north-east monsoonal period from October to December.[61] Since rain-related damage had continued even after the submission of a report on the earlier flooding in November, and also after the recent visit of a central government survey team, on 4 December the Puducherry government said it would submit a supplementary report assessing additional damages and requesting ₹150 crore (US$23 million) for a total relief-fund requirement of ₹333 crore (US$51 million).[11]

From 1 December, torrential rains again inundated portions of the union territory. Puducherry recorded 22 cm of rainfall over a 24-hour period, making it the wettest December day ever. Heavy rain beginning on the evening of 4 December flooded parts of Puducherry, continuing through the following morning. According to the Regional Meteorological Centre, Chennai, Puducherry received nine centimeters of rain during this period. Puducherry District Collector D.Manikandan, said the rainfall had been "unprecedented in Puducherry, and the volume has been the highest [since] 1975." The administration said that 618 houses had been damaged thus far and over 2,000 people evacuated to safe places. On 5 December, the Karaikal region recorded 110 centimeters of rainfall since the start of the north-east monsoon.[44] In Karaikal, an enclave of Puducherry, nearly 50 houses were damaged due to heavy rain and flooding.[44]

On 5 December, the territorial government announced that nearly 9,000 hectares of paddy fields had been damaged by torrential rainfall, including 4,420 hectares of paddy fields in Puducherry,4,248.34 hectares in Karaikal and 287.15 hectares in Yanam. The government also reported 1,544 hectares of sugercane fields under cultivation had been damaged, along with 297.73 hectares of plantains, 231.9 hectares of tapioca and related tubers, 168.10 hectares of vegetable fields and eight hectares under betel-leaf cultivation. Proposed compensation rates would be as follows: ₹50,000 (US$766)) per hectare for betel-leaf losses, ₹35,000 (US$536)) per hectare for plantains, ₹20,000 (US$306)) per hectare for paddy fields and ₹15,000 (US$230)) per hectare for losses of vegetables, tapioca, tubers and sugercane. Compensation scales had also been set for losses of cotton, lentils and flowers.[62]

G. Sundaramurthy, a 62-year-old man in Ariyankuppam, was killed on 9 November when a mud wall collapsed, while Anandan, a 53-year-old man in Ouppalam, was subsequently reported to have died because of the rain.[57][63] On 17 November, S. Chellammal, a 72-year-old woman in Karayamputhur, was killed by the collapse of a rain-weakened mud wall.[64][65]

Andhra Pradesh[edit]

The Season began on 9 November, with a Depression hitting Tamil Nadu. Rainfall begin pour in the places of Nellore and Chittor district. Tirumala getting a heavy rainfall of 309mm along with Tirupathi with 148mm in 24 hours triggered a flood situation in Chittoor District. Coastal places of Tada recorded 114mm of rainfall the same day. There were 3-4 good spells of rain between 9th and 15th. As rainfall began in Andhra Pradesh on 16 November, local authorities closed schools in Nellore district. Heavy rain of about 27 cm pounded the temple town of Tirupathi. Thousands of lakes and ponds across the district overflowed, with breaches reported in some areas. At Sri Kalahasti, a pilgrimage centre in the region, the Swarnamukhi River was reported to be rising. Three people were swept away by floodwaters in Chittoor district, and water entered some houses. Roads were damaged in many parts of Nellore district, disrupting transport services. Andhra Pradesh chief minister Chandrababu Naidu held a teleconference with the district collectors of affected districts and asked disaster response personnel to be on alert.[66]

Heavy rainfall in Nellore, Chittoor and Kadapa districts flooded villages and disrupted transport networks. It was estimated by 18 November that at least 500 km of roads had been damaged by flooding, with the Chennai-Kolkata highway damaged the previous day and stranding hundreds of vehicles and motorists; officials said it would take days to restore the link. As in Tamil Nadu, the Southern Railway diverted or cancelled numerous trains.[67] Over 10,000 lorry drivers were stranded on the Tada-Kavali national highway in Nellore district; district officers established 61 relief camps in the flood-affected areas and deputed senior IAS officers to oversee the relief operations in Gudur, Naidupet and Atmakur divisions, respectively. Up to 500 tanks were breached as rivers overflowed, forcing the administration to suspend rescue operations in marooned villages, though administrators supplied 10,000 food and water packets through the rail network, which managed to operate some trains, while the APSRTC continued to run bus services to less-flooded areas such as Atmakuru, Udayagiri, Marripadu and Seetharampuram.[68]

In Kadapa district, the rains tapered off by 18 November; preliminary estimates were that the district had sustained about ₹29 crore (US$4 million) of agricultural losses. Horticulture farms at Pendlimerry, Chintakommadinne, Siddhavatam and Khajipet mandals were also destroyed by the rain. Other heavy agricultural losses were reported in Rayalaseema, Nellore, Prakasam, East and West Godavari districts; the chief minister asked agriculture department officials to drain fields at the earliest in order to save crops.[69]

In a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 19 November, Chief Minister Naidu reported preliminary estimates of flood-related damage in Andhra Pradesh included ₹1,250 crore (US$191 million) worth of agricultural-related damages and ₹1,025 crore (US$157 million) of damage to infrastructure; he requested central authorities to release ₹1,000 crore (US$153 million) for immediate relief efforts.[16] According to Naidu, Nellore district was the most seriously affected, reporting an estimated ₹1,395 crore (US$214 million) worth of losses, followed by Chittoor district, which reported losses of ₹818 crore (US$125 million). Kadapa district was also seriously affected, with extensive crop damage reported in East and West Godavari districts and a lesser scale of damage in Anantapur, Prakasam and Krishna districts.[16] The aquaculture industry in Nellore district was catastrophically affected, with over 8000 hectares of fish and prawn ponds destroyed, at an estimated loss of ₹250 crore (US$38 million).[70] On 2 December, Thota Narasimham, an MP from the Telugu Desam Party, reported in the Lok Sabha that preliminary losses in the state roughly totalled ₹3,819 crore (US$585 million).[71]

Heavy rains resumed on 2 December, adding to the devastation in Nellore and Chittoor districts, with more rains forecast over the ensuing days; Chittoor district received between 50–160 mm of rainfall. Chief Minister Naidu directed district officials and health, water and sanitation officers to organise water purification and set up medical relief camps.[72] On 4 December, Andhra Pradesh Home Minister Nimmakayala Chinarajappa reported heavy infrastructural losses in Nellore and Chittoor districts, with heavy agricultural losses in Godavari district; he added that over 5,00,000 acres of standing crops had been destroyed, and that the state government had requested ₹3,750 crore (US$574 million) in immediate relief funds from the central government.[5] At the start of December, Chittoor district recorded 65.1 cm of rain over the monsoonal season thus far, as opposed to a normal 16.1 cm of rainfall. 2,429 hectares of crops in the district were damaged, including 1,790 hectares of paddy that had been submerged. A further 3,039 hectares of horticultural crops were also damaged.[73] After a central government survey team completed an assessment of the flood-hit districts on 12 December, the state government submitted a final revised estimate of damages from the November and December floods; the memorandum stated that the flooding had caused ₹4,960 crore (US$760 million) worth of damages and losses.[10]

As of 4 December 81 people were reported to have been killed by flooding in the state,[5][6][16] while over 14,000 people had been evacuated to relief camps in Nellore and Chittoor districts.[74]

Consequences of flooding[edit]

Supplies of basic necessities, including milk, water and vegetables, were affected due to logistical difficulties. During the December floods in Chennai and the adjoining areas, milk packets sold for ₹100 (US$1.50), five times more than their usual cost. Water bottles and cans were sold at prices between ₹100 (US$1.50) to ₹150 (US$2.30). What's more shocking is that vegetables were sold at max ₹6 to ₹10 over and above their normal average cost at the wholesale level.[75]

Apart from basic necessities, fuel supplies and travel were greatly affected, especially in Chennai.[76] Numerous accounts of price-gouging were reported; airfares to and from for most parts of South India peaked to almost 10 times over their normal price. A round trip fare from Mumbai or New Delhi to Bangalore, Karnataka (the nearest accessible city to Chennai, Tamil Nadu) was sold by airlines like Jet Airways at rates of almost ₹1 lakh (US$1,500), a trip which would have ordinarily cost between ₹10,000 (US$150) to ₹20,000 (US$310).[77] Apart from airfares in South India, airfares also increased for other connections within the country, due to disruptions in rail services.[78] In response, the Ministry of Civil Aviation warned companies against taking advantage of the situation to overcharge and that it would intervene if any of the passenger flight carriers did so. On its own, the civil aviation ministry also operated flights from the Rajali naval airbase in Arakonam, Chennai with a fixed price of ₹2,000 (US$31) per passenger for travel to the northern states and ₹1,000 (US$15) per passenger for travel to the southern states.[79]

In Chennai, over 1.5 lakh (150,000) street vendors sustained losses of over ₹300 crore (US$46 million).[80] The persistent rainfall and flooding forced several major automakers in the region, including Ford, Renault, Nissan and Daimler AG, to temporarily halt production, resulting in estimated losses of up to ₹1,000 crore (US$153 million).[81] Industry analysts estimated total industrial losses as a result of the floods to be in the range of ₹10,000 to ₹15,000 crore (US$1.52 billion to US$2.27 billion).[17] All of the major auto- and truck-makers in the Oragadam and Sriperumbudur manufacturing belts resumed operations by 8 December, despite ongoing damage assessments; some employees were forced to continue working from their homes.[82] Many major information technology companies, including Infosys and Tata Consultancy Services, closed their offices and had their employees work from their homes, or transferred operations to other locations in cities including Pune and Bengaluru.[83] Prices of vegetables and fruits significantly increased, as over 50% of supplies were affected after numerous lorries were stranded.[17] The Indian Oil Corporation was forced to close its large Manali refinery in Chennai because of the floods.[84] Popular television networks, namely Puthiya Thalaimurai, Jaya TV and Mega TV halted services following flood-related technical difficulties. Motorcycle producer Royal Enfield shut its Chennai offices on 1 December, as well as its plants in Thiruvotriyur and Oragadam, which had already lost the production of 4,000 motorcycles in November.[85] The Chennai real estate market sustained an estimated loss of nearly ₹30,000 crore (US$4.6 billion),[86] while over 20,000 small and medium industrial units across Tamil Nadu reported total losses of over ₹14,000 crore (US$2.1 billion).[87]

Insurers in India estimated they would receive claims totalling over ₹1,000 crore (US$150 million) for losses to property, cargo and inventory, mostly from auto companies.[88] During the first period of floods, claims worth about ₹500 crore (US$77 million) were settled by various general insurance companies in India, largely from shopkeepers and vehicle owners. According to the General Insurance Corporation of India, another large amount of claims was expected to be reported by automobile companies based in South India.[89] The General Insurance giant of India, the New India Assurance alone received claims amounting about ₹425 crore (US$65 million) from about 1,700 claims submissions till mid December.[90] By late January 2016, various insurers reported they had received roughly 50,000 damage claims totalling ₹4,800 crore (US$740 million).[91]

Several Indian IT giants like Tata Consultancy Services and Wipro also informed their stake holders about an expected material impact on its third-quarter earnings due to the floods and then to the low volume revenue during Christmas and New Year holidays in the west.[92] Car makers were also hugely affected due to shut down of plants, thus leading to lower production volume. German automaker BMW expected to resume production only from January 2016 while the American auto maker Ford started its plant only in late December 2015. The estimated production loss cost of BMW was about ₹250 crore (US$38 million) and Ford's was about ₹600 crore (US$92 million).[93]

Relief efforts[edit]

Tamil Nadu[edit]

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa announced an initial allocation of ₹500 crore (US$77 million) for relief and rehousing, with ₹4 lakh (US$6,126) for each family who had lost relatives in the floods. 12 cyclone shelters were built in Nagapattinam district, while 11 teams of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) were dispatched to Tamil Nadu. Over 10,000 people had been rescued by 14 to 27 November and dozens of relief camps established .The Indian Air Force deployed four helicopters to airlift flood victims from inundated parts of Chennai city. Over 5,300 people had been rescued by 16 November and dozens of relief camps established.[66][94] Political parties in Tamil Nadu demanded swift action and the allocation of central government relief funds. Opposition party Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) donated ₹1 crore (US$153,160) to the state government on behalf of the party. DMK leader Karunanidhi however criticised the government's disbursement of ₹500 crore (US$77 million) as insufficient considering the amount of damage resulting from the floods. He and local Communist Party of India state secretary R Mutharasan urged efforts to obtain large amounts of federal disaster relief funding; Karunanidhi further suggested soliciting funds "from the rich in Tamil Nadu for disaster relief and the establishment of party monitoring committees to ensure a speedy disbursal of relief without any discrimination". Anbumani Ramadoss, Lok Sabha MP from the Pattali Makkal Katchi demanded an immediate ₹5,000 (US$77) be disbursed to families that had lost their livelihoods because of the flooding.[95]

The Indian Coast Guard and the three other branches of the Indian Armed Forces conducted rescue operations across Tamil Nadu, with the Indian Army and Air Force rescuing people in Kancheepuram district.[95] The IAF conducted 25 sorties in Tamil Nadu and in Andhra Pradesh, air-dropping 5000 kg of supplies and rescuing 25 stranded people before ceasing operations on 20 November.[96] Uninterrupted power supply had been restored in 671 of the 683 village panchayats in Cuddalore district, with the remaining panchayats supplied with drinking water through tanker lorries. 40 medical camps and 121 special camps for cattle stock had been constructed and 70 relief camps had distributed 58,000 food packets. Upwards of 5,335 people living in low-lying areas had been evacuated and over 90,000 food packets distributed in 101 relief camps. In Tiruvallur district, 18,501 food packets were distributed through 57 relief camps and 2,958 people had been given shelter. In Kancheepuram district, people in low-lying areas had been moved to safety and 16,000 food packets distributed.[12] It was reported on 18 November that 55,000 people across Tamil Nadu had been screened for water- and vector-borne diseases in medical camps, while a further 402 mobile medical units were operating.[97] On 22 November, the central government released an initial ₹939.63 crore (US$144 million) for immediate relief efforts in the state,[98] sanctioning a further ₹1,000 crore (US$153 million) on 3 December.[84] Over 11 lakh (1,100,000) people were rescued in the Chennai region by the time rainfall ceased.[6][12][99]

With the return of flooding and rains on 30 November, Prime Minister of IndiaNarendra Modi assured all possible help to Tamil Nadu on 1 December. The NDRF, the Coast Guard and the three other branches of the Indian Armed Forces resumed the evacuation of stranded people.[100] In Chennai, the Chennai Corporation established 80 relief centres to accommodate around 10845 people.[101] The Chennai City Police mobilised over 10,000 police officers and trained swimmers, deploying drones across the city to locate upwards of 200 people, who were all rescued.[102][103] The NRDF had deployed 22 rescue teams to Tamil Nadu by the night of 2 December, and had rescued over 500 people.[26] By the evening of 2 December, over 4,500 people had been evacuated to 24 relief camps in Chennai district, with a further 23,000 people in 99 relief camps in Kancheepuram district and nearly 2,000 others in 25 camps in Tiruvallur district.[104] By the afternoon of 3 December, the NDRF said it had rescued over 5,000 people; 11 army columns were in position by the evening.[84] Over 1,500 stranded passengers were evacuated from Chennai International by the evening of 2 December.[105][106] By 4 December, the IAF had established air bridges from Meenambakkam Airport to Arakonnam and between Arakonnam and Tambaram Air Base, nearly 30 km from Chennai; it had rescued over 200 people from both locations. The NRDF deployed over 20 more teams in the Chennai area, and had rescued over 10,000 people in all by the afternoon.[34] In Kancheepuram district, over 55,000 people had taken refuge in 237 relief camps by 5 December.[43]

The Indian Navy orchestrated a disaster relief operation under the command of Rear Admiral Alok Bhatnagar, the Flag Officer Commanding Tamil Nadu, Puducherry Naval Area (TNNA). The Eastern Naval Command of the Indian Navy rushed an amphibious warfare vessel, the INS Airavat, to Chennai on 2 December, with a complement of 20 divers, five Gemini boats, four landing craft and two boats. Three naval flood relief teams, comprising 86 trained swimmers and divers and three officers, were rushed to Tamil Nadu, along with several hundred food packets. The INS Rajali naval air station at Arakkonam functioned as a makeshift airport for transporting relief materials and evacuating stranded people.[107][108] On 3 December, the Eastern Naval Command despatched the fleet tankerINS Shakti and the stealth guided missile frigateINS Sahyadri to Tamil Nadu; the ships brought 105 additional divers, 200 tents, 3000 towels, 1000 blankets, 10 field kitchens and food, milk powder, medicines, 5000 litres of bottled water and 700 tonnes of fresh water.[109] General Dalbir Singh Suhag, the Chief of the Army Staff, flew to Chennai on 4 December to supervise the Army's rescue efforts; he and the General Officer Commanding, Dakshin Bharat Area, conducted an aerial reconnaissance. An additional 15 NDRF teams were planned to arrive in a day or two.[36] With rainfall gradually becoming less intense, the pace of relief efforts intensified by 5 December. By then, more than 11 lakh (1,100,000) people had been evacuated to safer places and thousands more temporarily housed in relief camps across the city and adjoining districts. People in many localities began draining stagnant water, while government relief efforts were supplemented by thousands of NGO volunteers and individuals with food packets, drinking water, clothes, blankets and medicines. 92 mobile medical teams were deployed across Chennai on 4 December to tend to the needy, while 200 special medical camps became operational on 5 December, in addition to more than 210 camps already operating.[37]

Ravi Shankar Prasad, the Union Minister of Telecommunications said BSNL would provide free services through the week.[26] The National Crisis Management Committee (NCMC), chaired by Cabinet Secretary P.K. Sinha, sent 5000 litres of milk, 100,000 bottles of water, 7 tonnes of biscuits and 10 tonnes of instant noodles to Tamil Nadu on 4 December; the committee also decided to augment the nine army columns (roughly 675 troops, or 75 per column) operating in the state with an additional five columns (roughly 375 troops).[110] In Madurai district, state officials distributed ₹13.93 lakh (US$21,335) to 412 people whose houses had been partly or completely damaged because of flooding; 111 people in the first category each received ₹5,000 (US$77), while each of the others received ₹4,100 (US$63).[111] Nine shipments of bedding, carpets, biscuits, rice and fresh water packets totalling ₹3.5 crore (US$536,060) were despatched by lorry to Tiruvallur district on 5 December by state Environment Minister Thoppu N Venkatachalam.[112] On 4 December, the Coimbatore City Corporation sent ₹5 lakh (US$7,658) of relief supplies to Chennai, including 2,000 blankets, 1,000 towels, 2,000 baby napkins, 2,000 sanitary napkins, 4,000 candles, 2,000 matches, 21,000 biscuit packets, 6,000 health drink bottles, 6,000 toothpaste and brush sets and a few other items. The Corporation also sent 165 men, including 150 conservancy workers, in buses and lorries with equipment to carry out relief operations.[113] In Kanyakumari district, residents had by 8 December contributed ₹22.11 lakh (US$33,864) to the Chief Minister's Relief Fund along with ₹35 lakh (US$53,606) worth of relief materials; two shipments of relief materials had been sent to Kanchipuram and Cuddalore districts.[114]

As of 10 December, the Tamil Nadu state government said roughly 17,16,000 (17.16 lakh) people had been temporarily housed in 6,605 flood relief camps erected across the state, most of which were in Chennai, Cuddalore, Thiruvallur and Kanchipuram districts;[53][115] 600 boats had been mobilised, roughly 1,22,94,470 (1.2 crore) food packets distributed, 26,270 medical camps conducted and 25,65,000 (25.65 lakh) persons treated in those camps.[53] In addition, up to 49,329 people had been screened through 222 medical camps and 97 mobile medical units on 9 December alone.[53] An immediate relief of ₹67.47 crore (US$10 million) had been disbursed to 1,11,278 families, and a total of 80,120 people belonging to the army, navy, air force, NRDF, fire service, Coast Guard, police and other official groups had been involved in rescue efforts in the state.[116][117] The Chennai Corporation, which began distributing relief materials in the city from 6 December, reported it had received nearly 13 lakhs (1.3 million) of relief materials to that point, including 58,156 bedsheets, 7.02 lakh water packets, 33,000 packets of powdered milk, 52,000 packets of bread, 16,000 bags of rice, 56,000 packets of biscuits, 3500 mats and 2200 saris and dhotis.[38] In Chennai city, over 1,00,000 (1 lakh) tonnes of flood debris and sludge was slowly being cleared away, while stagnant water had been pumped from 787 of 859 waterlogged neighbourhoods.[53] Relief operations in Chennai were largely concluded by 19 December, by which time 1.28 crore (12.8 million) food packets had been distributed, 1.86 lakh (186,000) tonnes of garbage collected and 16.79 lakh (1.679 million) people screened at 10,833 medical camps.[42]

On 5 December, Prime Minister Modi announced ex gratia payments of ₹2 lakh (US$3,063) to the next of kin of those who had lost their lives in the floods, and ₹50,000 (US$766) each to those seriously injured.[37] On 7 December, the Tamil Nadu state government announced a comprehensive relief package for those affected by the floods. According to a statement made by Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, people living in huts who had lost them in the floods would be compensated with a permanent house, ₹10,000 (US$153), 10 kilos of rice, a sari and a dhoti; those affected by flooding and who lived in substantial houses would receive the same clothes and amount of rice along with ₹5,000 (US$77) in compensation. 10,000 permanent houses would be allotted in Chennai and new houses constructed for those previously in huts. The relief assistance would be deposited in the bank accounts of beneficiaries, while aid-in-kind, including rice, dhotis and saris would be distributed through PDS outlets, said Jayalalithaa; she further stated that she had ordered an immediate enumeration of affected families, and that the aid would be disbursed in a few days after a listing was complete. For those living along the banks of the Adyar, Cooum River and the Buckingham Canal and who had lost homes, the Chief Minister ordered an immediate allocation of 10,000 tenements in Okkiyam Thoraipakkam and Perumbakkam, which had been built by the Tamil Nadu Slum Clearance Board. Livestock losses would be compensated with ₹10,000 (US$153) (for losses of cows and buffaloes) and ₹3,000 (US$46) (for losses of goats and pigs); poultry would be compensated at a rate of ₹100 (US$2). Agricultural damage would be compensated at a rate of ₹13,500 (US$207) per hectare if 33 percent or more of paddy crops had been lost, and at a rate of ₹18,000 (US$276) per hectare for long-term (perennial) crops. Finally, special camps for two weeks, beginning from 14 December would be held to issue duplicate land title deeds, educational certificates, cooking gas connection cards, voter identity and Aadhaar cards and bank passbooks, all free of cost.[115]

In addition, on 9 December Chief Minister Jayalalithaa requested Modi to develop a credit and soft loan programme through the Finance Ministry to aid families who had lost personal belongings and household appliances; this was as the state's existing compensation plan was inadequate for effectively compensating affected people for those losses.[53] It was reported by The Hindu that an average flood-affected person would require a minimum of ₹30,000 (US$459) to be adequately compensated for losses.[118] As of February 2016, the Chief Minister's Public Relief Fund had received a total of ₹338.77 crore (US$52 million) in donations.[119]

Andhra Pradesh[edit]

In Andhra Pradesh, the state government announced an initial ex gratia payment of ₹5 lakh (US$7,658) to the relatives of flood victims, while 140 relief camps were established in Nellore district, the worst affected. ₹2 crore (US$306,320) of relief supplies were distributed to fishermen, weavers and local communities in the district; other organisations helped to distribute food packets and blankets.[120] On 24 November, the central government stated it had released an initial ₹1,030 crore (US$158 million) towards relief efforts, with further funds possible following an assessment.[121] In Chittoor district, 8,455 affected households were given a total of ₹4.29 crore (US$660,000) in compensation, while 10,797 people were sheltering in rehabilitation camps. ₹47.14 lakh (US$72,200) was sanctioned to compensate for livestock and poultry losses.[73] On 3 December, Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu offered support to Tamil Nadu, which had likewise been severely affected by the floods.[84]


During the floods in December, the administration in Puducherry evacuated over 1,000 people to relief centres and distributed over 2 lakh food packets to affected citizens.[84][122] The NDRF deployed two teams in Puducherry; several voluntary organisations launched relief efforts, distributing blankets, food and water.[123]

On 5 December, district collector Manikandan said 173 relief centres had been opened in Puducherry and that those evacuated from low-lying areas had been moved to 22 relief centres. They were given food thrice a day, with children given milk; blankets were also provided. In the past week, 5,25,475 food packets had been distributed. Special medical camps were conducted and medicines and sanitary napkins were distributed. The administration opened 66 relief centres in Karaikal to accommodate rain affected persons.[44]

On 4 December, Chief Minister Rangasamy said the union territorial administration would immediately disburse ₹150 crore (US$23 million) in relief to farmers, hut-dwellers, homeowners and cattle owners in the Puducherry, Karaikal and Yanam regions. He expressed pain at witnessing the "unprecedented havoc the rains had caused in Puducherry and Karaikal regions during the last twenty days, damaging standing crops, horticultural crops and also [damaging] houses and huts, besides cattle owners". The administration further decided to provide financial relief of ₹124 crore (US$19 million) to 3,10,000 families covered under the public distribution system (PDS), or ₹4,000 (US$61) to each family. "All families holding ration cards would be handed relief, and each of 3.10 lakh families would be handed ₹4,000 (US$61)" and it would cost more to the exchequer the Honorable Chief Minister Rangasamy said.[11] On 11 December, the Chief Minister gave ₹4 lakh (US$6,126) to each of the families of the victims.[65]

On 18 April 2016, the central government approved ₹35.14 crore (US$5 million) of additional financial assistance for Puducherry.[124]



National media outlets did not respond promptly to the flooding in Chennai and across South India, resulting in public criticism on Twitter, citizen-journalism and curated news sources[125] for help. Following numerous public allegations against media outlets for poor coverage,[126] and a huge outpouring of support across social media networks[127] the mainstream media provided increased news coverage of the situation.

President Pranab Mukherjee said he was "saddened by the loss of human lives and serious damage to infrastructure in Chennai", stating his "prayers and good wishes are with the people of Tamil Nadu during this difficult time".[34] On 2 December, Prime Minister Narendra Modi discussed the ongoing flood situation with Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. In the Lok Sabha, Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu said that Singh would chair a high-level meeting to deliver relief to the people of Tamil Nadu. He said the ministers were "trying to coordinate with various agencies on relief operations", and that he had alerted the Civil Aviation Ministry to send food to the relief camps. "Since the runway[s] [are] full of water, we have to send food and other basic amenities to the people stranded [at Chennai airport]", Naidu said, adding that he was moved by the "plight of ordinary people [in Tamil Nadu]". He concluded that it was "time for Parliament to convey to [the] people that [they should] be confident".[128] As the extent of the disaster became clear, the Prime Minister flew to Chennai on the afternoon of 3 December to personally review the relief efforts; he met with Chief Minister Jayalalithaa and conducted an aerial survey of flood-stricken areas in the city. In a brief statement which he began in Tamil, upon arriving at Adyar naval base, Modi expressed support and later tweeted "The Government of India stands shoulder to shoulder with the people of Tamil Nadu in this hour of need."[84]

On 18 November, Amit Shah, the national president of the Bharatiya Janata Party, stated the party would donate ₹1 crore (US$153,160) towards flood-relief efforts in Tamil Nadu and also established a three-person commission to visit the state and report on the progress of the relief efforts with the delegation headed by Union minister Nirmala Sitharaman, accompanied by Union minister Pon Radhakrishnan and MP Gopal Chinayya Shetty.[129]Sonia Gandhi, the president of the Indian National Congress expressed her distress urging central and state government authorities to spare no effort in their relief works, and that Congress party workers were prepared to aid in the crisis.[130] On 2 December, Rahul Gandhi, vice-president of the INC, expressed his concern via Twitter, stating his thoughts were with the people of Tamil Nadu, and urging Congress party workers in the affected regions to "extend all possible assistance".[26]

Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha members made urgent requests for all possible assistance on behalf of the flood-stricken areas. T G Venkatesh Babu, Lok Sabha MP from the AIADMK, thanked the central government and Modi for their efforts and requested further aid for Tamil Nadu from the National Disaster Response Fund; he insisted the flood situation in the state should be declared a "national calamity".[131] In the Rajya Sabha on 2 December, leaders of major parties from both sides of the house, including the INC and the Communist Party of India (Marxist), agreed to donate funds from the Member of Parliament Local Area Development Scheme (MPLADS); the specific amount was to be decided upon.[132] On 3 December, Home Minister Rajnath Singh stated in Parliament that the flood situation was "alarming", and that Chennai had "turned into an island". Singh reiterated the central government would provide all necessary assistance to Tamil Nadu.[133]

The Karnataka state government announced on 2 December that it would donate ₹5 crore (US$765,800) in relief funds to Tamil Nadu,[34] and said it was also ready to donate 100 tonnes of powdered milk worth ₹1.5 crore (US$229,740).[134]Chief Minister of OdishaNaveen Patnaik expressed his concern over the flooding in Tamil Nadu to his counterpart Jayalalithaa; on 4 December, the Odisha state government donated ₹5 crore (US$765,800) to Tamil Nadu.[26][135] In a letter to Jayalalithaa, Chief Minister of DelhiArvind Kejriwal
