Cyclone 'FANI' at Orissa

Odisha facing heartbreaking natural disaster cyclone Storm ' Fani ' . Ripped through 8 districts of Odisha . 


Lakhs of people have been affected and initial report says 20 people have died through collapsing of of walls , trees and electrical poles evacuating millions of lives . But still there is no fixed death rate toll to validate numbers of people who died by cyclone Storm ' Fani ' . 


Why they named it ' Fani ' ? 

• The process of naming cyclones started when it became difficult for the authorities to alert people about the cyclones through longitude and latitude coordinates. The media also finds it easier to report on a cyclone if it has a name.   


 Fani storm cyclone has been highly unpredictable for forecasters to pin down, especially with respect to its track and speed.


The cyclone made landfall at 8.30 am in the state’s Puri district. The landfall carried ferocious winds with speeds ranging from 175-185 kilometres per hour (kmph). 


Several neighbouring states like chattishgarh have been alerted !
