Rain is down to drizzle in some parts. May the dawn bring hope and relief to our people. Be safe. Go out only in groups. Pray. #TNflood

If you can organise food packets in chennai please contact me. We will have it picked up and delivered. Batches of 50-100 packets. #TNflood

If you are not part of relief work please stay indoors. People crowding bridges to see flood sights are a nuisance. Stay home. #TNflood

Adyar bridge is open. Slow because of sightseeing crowds. Police requesting us to tell people to stay home. #TNflood

Kotturpuram accessible only from adyar side. All other routes closed. #TNflood

Please use hashtag #ChennaiMicro for food parcel pickup information. It will be easier for our team to respond. Thanks. @rj_balaji

More food packets needed for lunch. Will pick up. Rice items only. Urgent. #TNflood #chennaimicro
