Tree falls down on Luz Avenue 4th Cross Street

‘I went out to around 10 a.m. to get a cup of tea, and everything was fine. When I came back about 15 minutes later, this tree had fallen down’, says Kannadasan, a watchman who works on Luz Avenue. This tree had been tilted for a while now and the recent rains of the last two days must have caused the roots to lose their grip, he adds. This part of Mylapore, which used to have a lot of trees, lost quite a few during cyclone Vardah and now another big one has gone down.
