Disaster Aid: Chennai Flood Relief in 2015

Chennai, the capital city of Tamil Nadu, was particularly hard hit by these floods. This flood, which is said to be the worst in about a century, resulted in a massive displacement of close to 18 lakh people in the city. The damages and losses have been estimated between Rs 50,000 and Rs 100,000 crore. Significant flood relief activities were operationalized in the city by the government, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), political parties, the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), the Indian Navy as well as several international aid organizations.
