No rescue services have been operating in the area. Flash protests across the region as no essential supplies have been received.

Thousands of residents are fleeing north Chennai, where no rescue services have been operating. There are flash protests across the region, which has not received essential supplies in two days.

The Vyasarpadi bridge is completely blocked as is the Vallalar Nagar bridge with the mass exodus of thousands of people who are trying to leave. Ambulances too, are not able to get through. R.K. Nagar, Tondiarpet, Sathyamoorthy Nagar, Vallalar Nagar, Kodungaiyur and Mint are completely inundated and it is difficult to see dry land in these parts.

Residents who blocked the Vallalar Nagar bridge angrily screamed at officials saying that for the government, Chennai starts and ends at Poes Garden and Gopalapuram. “We have never been considered residents of Chennai and today you can see the effects of this,” the residents said.
