Life for people in Tamil Nadu's Chennai continue to be difficult though the rains have stopped in the capital. Many areas in Chennai still remain under water and supplies of essentials was difficult, said residents.
The water flow in Adyar river has come down and the amount of surplus water was released into the river from the Chembarambakkam lake.
In heavily-flooded areas like Mudichur and Tambaram, people were looking up to the skies praying for the rains to stop, and for relief materials.
