India battles deadly floods in Chennai

More heavy rainfall is forecast for Chennai, one of India's largest cities, where massive floods this week have inundated multi-lane highways, an airport runway, streets and homes.
Emergency workers, including the Indian armed forces, have rescued more than 70,000 people since Wednesday and evacuations are still ongoing, K.S. Kandaswamy, deputy commissioner of Chennai Corporation told CNN Thursday.
At least 269 people have died since October 26 when the unusually heavy monsoon rains began in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu.
