Ancient Indian City Dangerously Close To Running Dry

Chennai is the capital of the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu, and according to CNN, the city is quickly running out of water.

Every morning, millions of residents line up daily to fill cans and pots of water from state water trucks across the city.

Some residents get their rationed quota of water daily, while others get it once a week.

People are having to wash utensils in the same dirty water, saving a few bottles of clean water to cook food.
