This first hand report via email from Divakar Rajasekaran, a student at NITIE (ardivakar AT gmail DOT com)
The Vihar lake is full and overflowing. Water is gushing through the canals carrying the lake's water. Several houses in the low lying canal areas in aarey colony, morarji nagar are water logged.
People are moving to higher places leaving back their houses and belongings. Electricity is intermittant.
Food and water supply is being kept intact through some benevolant people. Restaurant owners and the general public around are helping in the supply and distribution of food. Relief was also received from the people living in IIT.
The wall holding up one of the outlets seems to be growing weak and a decision to open up the spruce gates is to be taken. Either ways, a lot of people of people will have to be evacuated if the rains continue for more than 24 hours.
A conservative estimate. 100 people are already evacuated to higher areas and another 500 may be affected if the rains continue. Relief workers are waiting in surrounding areas with bated breath ready to spring into action in case of eventualities.
Hope the rain gods show some mercy.
