Brimming Chitrakulam overflows banks, water flowing into streets since morning

The Chitrakulam, the temple tank to the south east of Sri Kapali Temple began to overflow since Thursday morning, with waters flowing out on all four sides of the tank.

The algae and vegetation topped waters were seen flowing on to the narrow streets and at one point, lashed against the doorways of a few houses on the eastern side of this tank.

Said Malini Mannath, a resident here, “Our street was sry till yesterday but since this morning the tank waters are washing the street.” Another resident said that if the steady rain continues houses fringing the tank are at risk of getting flooded.

Another resident said that this water was now flowing into Appu Street too.
