Chennai Flood Map

Tamil Nadu in southern India has suffered the heaviest rainfall in over a century causing massive flooding. Flood Maps has set up a crowd-sourced map to help identify inundated roads in the state capital, Chennai.

Reporting an inundated road simply involves zooming in on a street and clicking on it. The road is then marked pink on the map to show that the road is flooded. So far users of Flood Maps have contributed information on over 3,000 inundated roads in the city.

As well as showing where streets are flooded in Chennai the map includes the locations of open & closed flood relief camps and waterlogged locations in the city.
