#ChennaiRains Helplines

The scorching heat that ravaged the city until October had a hidden plan. And here, the secret is out – in the form of historical rains that Chennai hasn’t witnessed at least since 1915. The rest, you can read in the newspapers!

Here’s is a quick post to help people who are left helpless, homeless or stranded by the rains in the city. I am making below, a collection of helpline numbers and contacts that I come across in social media. If you know of additional helplines, please post in the comment below. Do share this post to all your contacts. We may never know who is stranded and where, as I write this and as you read this.
