In India, fresh heavy rains in the southern city of Chennai have caused serious flooding, with flights and trains suspended and hundreds of people without power.

The army has been deployed to rescue thousands of stranded people after two days of heavy rains.

At least 188 people are now known to have died in floods in Tamil Nadu state.

A depression in the Bay of Bengal has triggered rains in coastal areas of India.

Last month, non-stop rain for nearly a week brought the city of Chennai to a standstill.

Two days of fresh rains have again led to massive flooding, so much so that flights from the city's airport have been indefinitely suspended after flood waters entered the runway and tarmac areas.
