"Chennai is facing one of the wettest monsoons of the century, recording close to 120cm of rainfall this month. Daily life for over 6.7 million people was disrupted and the media called attention to the situation. Unsurprisingly, there is virtually no data available to identify which parts of the city were most affected, and vulnerable to such climate phenomena." Source: Mapbox blog.
Citizens are reporting flooded streets using OSM with flood-map. Lots of streets and waterways are still missing around Chennai and needs to be traced.
