Communicated clear, accurate, actionable messages around evacuation and shelter which provided time for citizens to evacuate and instructions about how and where to evacuate to. Disaster Relief And Rehabilitation (Cyclone Fani) Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Senior state officials and police officers were sent to the affected districts to co-ordinate efforts of various agencies. The Joint Typhoon Warning Center in Hawaii first tracked the developing storm on April 26. This is the result of a very effective strategy of disaster preparation and quick responding. On May 3 2019, Cyclone Fani made landfall near the city of Puri, on the east coast of India. Regular press briefings were made by officials to update people of the approaching cyclone. Introduction: Cyclone Fani is the first cyclone to be categorised “severe” by the Indian meteorological department since Cyclone Mala made landfall in Myanmar in 2006. Pre-identified vulnerable households, pre-staged equipment, and pre-stocked food and water at cyclone shelters. Tropical Cyclone Fani is forecast to become a formidable cyclone in the Bay of Bengal and is likely to pose a danger to parts of eastern India and Bangladesh late this week. By 2001, Odisha Disaster Rapid Action Force was also set up to conduct rescue operations and distribute relief. The same goes for today, but they are in a much better position thanks to the disaster preparedness and risk mitigation followed before the storm hit. This, after all, is a state where the average income is less than US$5 a day.

The last severe cyclone 'Nargis' in 2008 devastated Myanmar. When Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico in 2017 with wind speeds of 175mph, it caused a death toll of 2,975. Cyclone Fani is due to make landfall Friday in India's Odisha state. Fani was the strongest cyclone to hit the area in 20 years and brought with her 125 mph winds, driving rain, and storm surge of up to 13 feet. Above: Government initiated evacuation process in Puri, Odisha. There is a clear command and control structure for disaster relief and there are clear protocols in place for carrying out relief operations. Until 1999, Odisha didn’t have a well laid out plan for disaster management. However, thanks to a strong disaster management plan and quick and effective response, loss of life was limited. Since Fani had an average wind speed of 120 mph, the India Meteorological Department classified it as an extremely severe cyclone. As a result, though 64 people lost their lives, loss of life was dramatically minimized in comparison to the 1999 event. Two months after the cyclone hit, the Odisha State Disaster Management Authority was set up and plans put in place. Winds were as high as 120-130 mph and the storm was the equivalent of a Category 4 hurricane. This mammoth exercise involved more than 45,000 volunteers. Early recovery efforts were successful in restoring water systems and avoiding major disease outbreaks. This success story is a testament to the preparation and actions authorities in India took in the days leading up to landfall as well as to the investments made over the last two decades in disaster management planning. Cyclone Fani has left destruction in its wake, not even sparing the trees of the coastal districts in Odisha. These provided safe shelter for evacuees throughout the duration of the storm. The post-cyclone recovery will be a daunting challenge to the administration in Odisha, demanding a lot of resources. Odisha has learned how to save lives. In 1999, Cyclone Odisha devastated communities along the coast of the State of Odisha and killed over 10,000 people. Implemented a public warning campaign involving over 2.6 million text messages, and hundreds of volunteers, emergency workers, and local authorities utilizing sirens, loudspeakers, TV and radio. However, the state is struggling to administer relief to impacted areas and to meet basic needs including power, water and food. Storm surges and powerful winds reaching 125mph blew off roofs, damaged power lines and uprooted countless trees. In the longer-term, impacts to crops and infrastructure have contributed to the devastation of millions of livelihoods and homes. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. The United Nations office for Disaster Risk Deduction (UNISDR) and other organisations have hailed government and volunteer efforts that have ensured the levels of destruction have been kept to a minimum. Tropical Cyclone Fani: The storm is India's strongest tropical cyclone to make landfall in 20 years. Three months after the cyclone, relief camps have wound down and media attention has waned, but Fani’s survivors continue the long road to recovery. Preparations to fight the onslaught of Fani involved a number of government agencies, as well as local community groups and volunteers working together.

Prior to Fani's landfall, authorities in India and Bangladesh moved at least a million people each from areas within Fani's projected path onto higher ground, and into cyclone shelters, which is thought to have reduced the resultant death toll and casualties. People were repeatedly advised over all forms of media not to panic and given clear “do and don’ts”.
