As Tamil Nadu continues to experience heavy rains, life in capital Chennai has come to a standstill with flooded streets and severely-affected transport services. Chennai rains have claimed 40 lives so far.

An independent weather blogging community from Chennai, tweeting under the handle @ChennaiRains, has been tweeting a series of photos that show submerged roads, stalled cars and fallen trees.

Other users too have tweeted photos of the plight of the people of Chennai.

As the above pictures show the state of the city, schools, colleges and even offices remain shut.
