      I guess if you are sure water has not entered through air intake or exhaust you can start.

      Up to running board normally wont be an issue but better avoid taking out unless its necessary. Let water drain and then take the car.

      It is very scary to see the Chennai flood pictures on-line. Reminded me of similar flood situation from Mumbai during last decade.

      Stay safe guys.

      Chennai flood-is your car ok?

      I dont usually watch tv but yesterday i had to , after i saw the flooding in chennai.I saw ground floors submerged and cars fully under water, Was shocking to see animals like cows battling the floods with only their heads visible and boats going like they do in venice. Is the floods really that bad or does certain tv networks making it seem big. Also gh's in chennai , are you ok?

      The floods are really bad. It was repeat of 2005but intensity was more. Still few areas are flooded.

      Sholinganallur to medavakkam road is still blocked.

      it has been bad in some areas and very bad in some. but media has as usual exaggerated. and again politicized as well.
      things are slowly but surely returning to normal.

      the reservoirs had almost dried up, so most of the deluge got collected in the reservoirs instead flooding the city and its suburbs.
      had the reservoirs been at normal levels it could have led to a much larger disaster.

      but the wrath has now shifted to andhra coastline.

      Some years ago there was a devastating flood in mumbai, the reason, polyethene and plastics clogged the storm drains . In chennai what was the reason, all channels tell of flood but none about the cause. Is using concrete everywhere and improper drainage the reason.I also think flat developers are also a reason for construction of residences in low lying terrains. About the cars, are they repairable or write offs?

      The outskirts development was so quick and half of these been developed in the lake area.

      real estate guys simply encroach the lakes, marsh land developed infra. There isnt any place for water to go.
