    DEC. 3: An aerial view of a partially submerged airplane is pictured in a flooded area in Chennai, India. At least 269 people died in catastrophic flooding that paralyzed the city and turned thousands from their homes during the past week. Meteorologists blamed El Nino for the excessive rain that began Nov. 12, with 14 inches falling in 24 hours at one point. But urban planners and environmentalists in India say that Chennai's flood woes were manmade, citing years of rampant development and poor storm water management.
