Flood victims are scrambling for accommodation, food, shelter and donations. So far, the death toll in the rain-related incidents is 197.
It is expected that rain will continue for next 48 hours and a flood alert has been issued.
And despite the city being in a crisis situation, the people of Chennai helped others and restored faith in humanity.
