Cyclone Michaung wreaked havoc in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, and other southern parts of the country, affecting normal life.
The images of the aftermath of the cyclone are spine-chilling as footage showed vehicles piled up by the powerful storm. 

Many residential areas have been completely inundated. People are finding it extremely difficult even to avail basic essentials as they are unable to step out of their homes. 

Seeing the gravity of the situation, south star Vijay Thalapathy, came out with an appeal to speed up the rescue operations. 

Thalapathy took to his official Instagram handle and urged his fan clubs to help the people stranded in the affected areas. 

The official post read, “Due to the heavy rains of Cyclone Michuang, a lot of people were affected in Tamil Nadu and Chennai. The public including children, women, and elderly people are suffering due to the devastation caused by the cyclone. Thousands of people are suffering without water, food, and basic facilities. I request people of welfare club members to volunteer to help the people in the affected areas and volunteer in rescue missions undertaken by the government. Let us join hands to remove grief,” 

Thalapathy’s fans have praised him for his effort to help the needy and filled the comment section with positive remarks. 

It is to be noted that Cyclone Michaung has left a trail of destruction in some parts of southern Odisha as well. The incessant rain that began on Tuesday night and continued till Thursday morning caused a landslide at Bariput under Koraput’s Narayanpatna block on Wednesday night. The landslide reportedly disrupted road communication.
