"No power in my locality for more than 30 hours too. Guess that's the case in many places. Not Sure what options we have #ChennaiFloods," Ashwin posted on 'X', formerly twitter on Tuesday.

Ashwin, who is a resident of Chennai, has been posting and sharing several video clips of the water logged city on 'X'.

"Hang tight for another day everyone Even if the rain stops, recovery is going to take a while. #ChennaiRains2023 #Michaung," the spinner had posted on Monday, while sharing a video of a damaged road.
