This was taken a few days before a devastating cyclone, Thane hit both Tamilnadu and Kerala approximately around New Years 2012. The sea was already rather rough.
Below is an image of Cyclone Thane taken on the same day as my photograph, 27th December, 2011.
Impact of Thane in Tamilnadu and Puducherry
As of the morning of December 31, Cyclone Thane had left at least 46 dead in Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry. About 7 deaths were reported in Pondicherry and 39 people have been reported dead in Cuddalore. Cuddalore and Pondicherry were the worst affected by Thane. The storm made the city inaccessible by damaging road network and the National Disaster Response Force and fire and rescue services are having difficulty in reaching the cyclone affected fishing hamlets.
Fishing activities had come to a complete halt in the cities of Chennai, Tiruvallur and Kanchipuram in the wake of the storm after the warnings by the weather department were received. About 10,000 fishing boats were moved to safer locations in all fishing hamlets in these areas. Chennai Corporation kept its four permanent relief centers (Basin Bridge, Chintadripet, Gopalapuram and Perambur Barracks Road) ready to accommodate people in case of evacuation due to torrential rains. People from low lying areas were shifted to community centers with adequate arrangements of food and medical round the clock.
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa ordered the immediate release of 150 crore towards relief and restoration of infrastructure damaged by the Cyclone Thane. She also directed the District Collectors, Deputy Collectors and department Secretaries to assess the extent of the damage caused by Cyclone Thane.
