After the drastic attack of Phailin Cyclone last year, Cyclone “Hud Hud” is roaring towards the coasts of Andhra Pradesh and Orissa with an enormous 180 – 200 km/hr speed. It will strike Orissa and Andhra Pradesh by 5:30 in the morning. The Central and State governments are on their toes for help. Indian Army personnel also have been kept ready in Visakhapatnam, whereas the Eastern Naval Command has made sure of four ships on stand-by, equipped with rescue equipments and emergency relief materials.

There are Six aircrafts on standby at the Naval Air Station INS Dega to undertake reconnaissance, rescue, casualty evacuation and air drop of relief materials.

This time there are lots of preparations done for safety of people. So don’t panic. Stay calm and Call for Help!

Here are few Graphical representations of HUD HUD taken from and
