First time in 137 years, Chennai floods force The Hindu to cancel print edition

Chennai-based newspaper, The Hindu, has not been printed for the first time in over a century due to heavy rains and floods in Chennai.

The Hindu website published a disclaimer stating, “Consequent to the heavy rain, print editions of The Hindu dated December 2, 2015, in Chennai, Vellore, Puducherry and Tirupati have been cancelled after taking into consideration the safety of those in the distribution network. However, the Chennai edition has been uploaded online in PDF format for the benefit of our readers.”

For the first time in its 137 years history, 'The Hindu', founded in 1878, cancelled its edition in Chennai, its headquarters and the largest market.
