Cyclone Nisha over Tamil Nadu has taken 70 lives so far. I know some of my family has had their house flooded - they live on the ground floor in a housing colony in Velachery. Everyone in the colony has been evacuated. There's been no electricity all day; regular phone lines are down. It's only a matter of time, I suppose, before peoples' cell phone batteries die on them, and food and water become serious issues. News on Jaya TV doesn't look good.
Hope all you people in Chennai are okay.
