Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.K. Stalin on Wednesday, December 6, 2023 inspected areas like Okkiyam Thoraipakkam, Kolathur, and Thiru Vi Ka Nagar, parts of which were still reeling under the impact of the flooding caused by Cyclone Michaung.

He inspected the efforts being taken to drain the water and distributed food and other essentials to the affected people. In a message on social media platform X (formerly Twitter), he said electricity has not been restored in a few areas that were still waterlogged to avoid accidents.

Meyyanathan would focus on Semmencheri and Perumbakkam; and Minister for Backward Classes Welfare R.S. Rajakannappan would focus on Royapuram.
