For the unversed, torrential rain triggered by cyclone Michaung has wreaked havoc upon Tamil Nadu. Most parts of Chennai are currently submerged in water. Several cars were seen floating on the waterlogged roads.
Meanwhile, Tamil actor Suriya and his brother Karthi have announced an initial donation of Rs 10 lakhs that will go to help with any kind of relief aid required. The distribution is being done by Suriya’s fan clubs.
