Incessant heavy rains hit the city of Chennai and its surrounding areas, sometimes resulting in water depths of 40 feet. A team of 500 volunteers immediately hit the scene to provide rescue operations, medical attention, food, clothing, blankets, utensils and other essential provisions.
Some volunteers used boats to pull people out of deep waters. Twenty-five doctors rushed to affected areas and Amrita Hospital sent a Mobile Telemedicine Unit, a vehicle equipped with several emergency facilities including a mini-operation theatre. In the following days, $750,000 was given to Tamil Nadu’s Chief Minister to contribute to a relief fund for further assistance.
