Ganjam, Gajapati and Rayagada districts mainly bore the brunt of the cyclone Titli

Berhampur:11/10/18 People in large parts of the State heaved a sigh of relief with cyclone Titli considerably weakening after its landfall in Odisha-Andhra Pradesh coast early morning today

The Ganjam, Gajapati and Rayagada districts in Southern Odisha mainly bore the brunt of the cyclonic storm with reports of storm uprooting trees and electric poles in these districts. No report of casuality has been received so far from any part of the State.

Mud-walled and asbestos shed houses were damaged extensively in these districts.

While cyclone fear has receded, heavy rains have lashed large areas affecting the normal life.

Meanwhile people in seaside villages in Kendrapara, Jagatsinhpur, Puri and Ganjam district who were evacuated yesterday night are slowly returning back to their respective houses.

“We are relieved. The cyclone Titli warning had triggered panic. By God’s grace, the nature’s fury has spared us. We did not take chances after cyclone warning was sounded. We voluntarily shifted ourselves to multi-purpose cyclone shelter”, said a resident of Sandhakuda locality in Paradip port town.
