Flooding in India Kills 269 People, Cuts off Services for Three Million

New Delhi, December 3 (RHC)-- In India, catastrophic flooding in the southern city of Chennai has killed at least 269 people and cut off basic services for more than three million people as the army and air force continue rescue operations. The flooding is being described as the worst in more than a century.

On Wednesday, one of India’s oldest newspapers, The Hindu, was not printed for the first time in 137 years because the flooding had made the printing presses inaccessible.

Meteorologists have predicted the torrential downpours will continue for another three days. The flooding has also killed at least 54 people in the nearby state of Andhra Pradesh.
