The Hindu newspaper not published for first time due to Chennai floods

Chennai: For the first time in the last 137 years, The Hindu newspaper was not printed on Wednesday.

The Hindu was started in Chennai (then Madras) in 1878. Since its inception it had never missed printing the daily newspaper.

But heavy rains and flooding in Chennai and surrounding areas prevented the workers from reaching its press located 30 km from the city in Maraimalainagar. As a result, the Wednesday issue was not printed.

The rains have caused havoc in the Chennai and surrounding districts. Army personnel have been deployed in the affected areas for rescuing thousands of stranded people.
