The entire city of Chennai is facing the wrath of Cyclone Michuang and the landfall is expected to be on Tuesday afternoon. So far the entire city has been facing bad weather with nonstop rains lashing the city.
Houses and apartment complexes have been flooded, while cars have been washed away. Waterlogging has been reported not only across the streets but also in airports making take-off difficult. The tweets from the favorite cricket stars might be the small tonic for a city struggling to keep itself safe.
