Actress Karishma Kotak, primarily known for hosting sports events, found herself stranded in Chennai after cyclone Michaung wreaked havoc in the city. Flying in to host a racing league, she initially experienced no rain, but a sudden thunderstorm and strong winds hit late at night, causing chaos.
Over the weekend, heavy rainfall transformed the streets into pools of water, leading to accidents and disrupting communication. Karishma was cut off from her family for a few hours due to the lack of Wi-Fi, but she later managed to reestablish contact. With flights cancelled, attempts to book a cab to Tirumala or Bangalore proved futile due to waterlogged roads. Although her event was postponed, leaving the city became a challenging task.

Describing the current scenario, Karishma mentioned stray dogs roaming, official announcements on loudspeakers, and the visible aftermath of fallen trees and damaged cars. Despite the challenging circumstances, her primary concern remains the safety of everyone in the affected area, coupled with the anticipation of a safe return to her hometown.
