Coimbatore, Oct 21: With the city experiencing heavy spells of rain over the last few days, mostly in the evening, the Coimbatore Corporation has decided to keep a close watch on flood-prone areas. This is to facilitate prompt de-watering measures so that water-logging does not lead to traffic snarls or cause problems in residential colonies.
“We have planned an early morning review of the situation every day. This should help in avoiding problems to people when they step out for work," Mayor R. Venkatachalam said on Monday, Oct 20.
“I have made it very clear to the officials that every effort must be taken to ensure water does not stagnate anywhere in the city and paralyse life," he said.
