Fresh showers hit parts of India’s southern Tamil Nadu state on Wednesday (December 09), disappointing residents who are reeling from the worst ever floods in a century.

About 280 people have died across the state since it was hit by torrential rains on December 01 that left large sections of capital Chennai under up to eight feet (2.5 metres) of water, and trapped people on rooftops with no communication.

Though water has started receding in many parts of the state, several areas remain water-logged, hindering normal life.
