This Map Highlighting Flooded Areas In Chennai Is Helping People And Rescue Teams

Published on 3 December, 2015 at 6:45 pm By

While people in Chennai are battling with the flood waters, five young minds created a real-time map of the city highlighting the flooded areas so that rescue and relief efforts can be well coordinated.

The five – Prasanna V Loganathar, Sajjad Anwar, Sanjay Bhangar, Aruna S, and Arun Ganesh – built the map which allows users to report which area in Chennai is underwater.
