Chennai Floods

These are challenging days in southern India. Parts of Chennai are experiencing the worst flooding in 100 years, by some accounts. The airport has been closed for days. The trains have stopped. Many in the city are without power. There is concern that clean drinking water will become scarce, as well as fuel for generators.

The Murthy Law Firm has a personal connection to Chennai. It is home to our affiliate office, Murthy Immigration Services, Pvt. Ltd. (MISPL), whose managing attorney, Senthil Kumar, and his wife, Suchitra, just visited our headquarters in Owings Mills, Maryland, returning to Chennai just one day before the airport was closed. Our thoughts are with them, and all of the staff, as well as our other friends and family in Chennai, and with everyone there, or with loved ones facing the deluge and the uncertainty that will follow.

It is important to note that the U.S. Consulate in Chennai is closed December 3rd and 4th. MISPL, and its satellite offices in Mumbai and Hyderabad, is also closed December 3rd and 4th. An emergency message for U.S. citizens in the region has been issued by the U.S. Consulate General in Chennai.

The MurthyNAYAK Foundation, begun by Murthy Law Firm President, Sheela Murthy and her husband, Vasant Nayak, is working with MISPL to make a charitable donation toward the relief efforts in Chennai. We know that many of our readers are also making donations and offering other assistance.
