As much of India bakes in a deadly heat wave, the country's sixth largest city is running out of water, Time reported Thursday.
In Chennai, home to nearly 4.6 million people, four major reservoirs are running dry. The monsoon has been delayed, and rainfall has fallen 99 percent in the region from June 1 to 19, while temperatures have reached 104 degrees Fahrenheit. "We are facing one of the worst water shortages in recent years. The water situation has been very bad for the last month.
And it will be worse if there is no rain in the coming days," Chennai resident Rajasimhan told BBC News. A weaker monsoon season in South Asia is one of the predicted outcomes of the climate crisis, Al Jazeera reported. State fisheries minister D Jayakumar told Al Jazeera that the government was moving approximately 400 water tankers on 9,000 trips across the city to help the thirsty population. But the water is not coming fast enough for some. There is some temporary relief in store for Chennai. Refugee MMTS.
