Road blocks

This huge banyan tree, reportedly more than 50 years old, came crashing down on Ritherdon Road in Chennai. The tree was so huge that it is taking days to cut it. Though the tree fell on the morning of the cyclone on October 27, it has not yet been cleared. As of today, only the top branches of the tree have been cut to make way on one side of the road. This picture was taken on October 30, Sunday morning. The road was blocked for more than 6 days.
