According to the Tamil Nadu government, as on Tuesday the death toll stood at 46 and more than 251,600 people have been evacuated to over 500 relief camps. The Cauvery delta region known as the granary of Tamil Nadu has lost over 1,70,454 trees – estimated by the Tamil Nadu government.
About 88,102 hectares of agricultural and horticultural crops have been damaged and 4,800 fishing boats damaged, as per government’s initial estimates. However, the number is just a fraction of the loss said farmers in Thanjavur and other neighbouring districts.
