After last year’s floods, much of Chennai is now more or less huddled indoors as Cyclone Vardah touches ground in the city, devouring almost everything that is coming its way. Heavy rainfall coupled with a powerful storm has engulfed the eastern coastal city. For those land-locked, it’s nigh impossible to understand the trauma and worry of the people there, but the many videos and photos being shared online on various social media platforms do provide a glimpse. One of the videos that have been thus shared is that of the panels of the Park Hyatt hotel in Chennai being ripped out of the façade and flying off in the powerful wind, which captures the danger that people affected are under.
A recently uploaded video on YouTube shows the panels of the five-star hotel flying off, unable to withstand the powerful gust of wind due to Cyclone Vardah. At a point in the video, it almost seems like the building would started to crumble!
Many images of Chennai’s state right now that have surfaced on the social media show how trees have fallen and created blockages on the roads.
If that’s not all, other videos that show cyclone Vardah in action, have been doing the rounds of the Internet, too. A video uploaded on Facebook by what seems like a local Kannada news channel, ‘Nyusu Kannada’ shows the monstrosity of the cyclone in Chennai.
Another video uploaded by a Facebook user Naveen Kumar shows what it apparently looks like in his part of the city after strong showers hit Chennai.
This video by a Facebook user Sree Rz will send chills down your spine, after you see the trees almost getting uprooted!
This video by David Appaswamy, a Facebook user will shake you.
