Odisha, a small state in the east coast of India, was battered by


Cyclone Philine in the last weekend. The cyclone came from the Bay
of Begal. It was the result of a low pressure area developing in the
sea. From a location a few hundred kilometers off the coast, Cyclone
Philine gradually moved towards the land. The wind speed was
nearly 220 kilometers per hour. The violent wind hit villages near the
coastline with deadly force. Mud houses were flattened, trees
uprooted and power lines were reduced to tangled heaps of wire.
Fortunately, weather radars tracked the Philine doggedly as a result
of which people were evacuated from their houses that fell in the
projected path of Cyclone Philine. Millions of people were quickly
moved to temporary shelters with remarkable efficiency. This
reduced the death toll to negligible numbers. It was a remarkable
success of disaster management in India. In another operation, the
Coast Guard spotted a cargo ship at night that had tilted
dangerously in the waters a few kilometers off Bengal. Responding
to its SOS call, the Coast Guard rushed to its rescue and lifted out
the sailors who were floating on their life boat in the dark near their
ship.
