Chennai, one of India’s largest cities, is in the grip of a crisis as water supplies run low. Water levels in four of the city’s main reservoirs have fallen to one of their lowest levels in 70 years.

Hotels and restaurants have been forced to close their doors because of a lack of water, saying they will reopen only when the rains arrive.

Residents have been forced to install their own unauthorized pumps or wait in long queues for hand pumps. Locals told Reuters news agency they get two containers of water after standing in a queue for hours.
