Journey

Cyclone Vardah that hit the East Coast on December 12, 2016 was a green disaster for Chennai. More than a lakh of trees were either felled or destroyed, seriously damaging Chennai’s green cover. Temperature levels have risen as a result posing new challenges to public health, drinking water security and food security. Coupled with unplanned urban expansion, air-conditioners, destruction of water bodies and marsh lands, this crucial loss of green cover further increases the disaster vulnerability of Chennai.
