The sixth-largest city in India is running out of water as reservoirs run dry
People in India's sixth-largest city lined up with cans amid a widespread water shortage during an intense drought that dried lakes and depleted groundwater.
Millions of people in Chennai were affected by the short water supplies, which sparked protests, work stoppages and business closures.
The BBC reported that residents in Chennai, which was officially known as Madras until 1996, stood in line for hours as water tank trucks were brought into the city from towns miles away.
Four of Chennai's main water reserves were completely dry, causing Chennai Metro Water to cut the water it supplies by 40%, The Guardian reported.
According to Reuters, Chennai relies on monsoon season to supply its water for the year. Last year, a drought followed a 62% shortfall in monsoon rains, compared with 2017, in part causing the water crisis, State Rural Development Minister S.P. Velumani said Wednesday. Monsoon rains this year were delayed in parts of the country.

The short water supplies come amid an intense heatwave in the country's northern and eastern regions.
There were signs of hope. The Times of India reported Wednesday that a storm system was developing in the Bay of Bengal, which could bring rain to the city in a few days.
