An estimated 10,000 tonnes of garbage has piled up in Chennai city. It is rotting faster than usual because large parts of Chennai are still water-logged. Municipal workers were able to clear only 5,000 tonnes of garbage per day. In Kotturpuram, one of the worst affected areas, municipal workers are busy clearing whatever they can. The drinking water tankers here are parked in slush. People have queued up in knee-deep dirty water to get clean water for their homes.
