Cyclone Fani: UN Praises India's Response To Devastating Storm
Odisha: Cyclone Fani, among the biggest and the "rarest of rare" tropical storms to hit the Indian subcontinent in years, tore into the coastal state on Friday. Fani left a trail of devastation across Odisha, home to 46 million people, before swinging towards Bangladesh where it killed at least 34 people and forced a massive evacuation.
The United Nations and other experts have praised India for its early warning systems and rapid evacuation of more than a million people, which helped minimise the loss of life from a deadly cyclone that battered its eastern coast.
The majority of deaths, 21, have been in Puri, Jyoti Prakash Das, the district magistrate, told. He said that the death toll could rise.
There had been only limited communications with the area, and relief officials said they not been able to contact rescue teams in Puri, home to the 12th century Jagannath temple, which was damaged.
In 1999, the same state was hit by a devastating 30-hour super-cyclone that saw a storm surge sweep 20km inland, killing more than 10,000 people.
This time, improved forecasting models, public awareness campaigns and well-drilled evacuation plans - backed by an army of responders and volunteers - have spared Odisha's inhabitants from the worst of Fani's fury.
