- Story Text: Cyclone Gulab that hit India's southern Andhra Pradesh and eastern Odisha states uprooted trees, damaged property and blocked roads on Monday (September 27).
Deep depression was intensifying into a cyclonic storm over India's Bay of Bengal that made landfall on Sunday (September 26).
Heavy rains and strong winds lashed out southern Srikakulam district and destroyed banana plantations, damaged houses, and uprooted electric poles.
Rescue teams deployed in Odisha and Andhra Pradesh evacuated people from low-lying areas.
"It (cyclone) was not intense but roads were blocked. Neither the people were harmed nor they were evacuated during the cyclone. After the cyclone, the circumstances of flood arise so, if there would be any need to evacuate or give MFR (medical first response) to anyone, our team is ready," said Team Commandant, National Disaster Response Force, Sushant Kumar Behera.
Cyclone Gulab that completed its landfall process was likely to move nearly westwards and weaken further into a depression during the next 12 hours.
