Its been absolutely pouring for the last 36 hours in Chennai because of the North East Monsoon. Check out the clouds in this satellite picture(focus on south India), you can hardly even see the Tamil-Nadu state outline!
And here’s a slightly closer-to-the ground look :
I desperately want to get out, but dread the thought of wading in sewage-mixed water in the road. I can see that the water is already touching the 3 feet mark on the road and am starting to worry on how much further Chennai’s notorious drainage can cope up. I definitely don’t want to be in a situation like this.
