Which Are The Flood Prone Areas in OMR, Chennai?

I am looking to purchase a land in the OMR stretch that I would eventually build a house and live in. But I'm really scared of ending up in a flood prone area. I contacted the Secretary of Chennai PWD for a flood zone map but no responses yet. I don't know if the flood zone map would be current though. If anyone lives or works near OMR, could you please chime in with areas where you have seen flooding occur? I heard any area between OMR and ECR from Pallikarnai to Sholinganallur can flood. One young man had uploaded a youtube video of flood that occurred in Sholinganallur in '08. It was very helpful. I am looking for some tips on which are flood prone areas in OMR from Perungudi up to Sholinganallur.

Most of the developments in OMR are in this sector only

As these areas develop further, flooding will be under control

Chennai's maximum investment is in the OMR region only. If you are holding back your investment, you will pay later more to buy the same thing
