The devastating cyclone Michaung hit the south Indian coastline two days ago. The storm is rapidly moving towards the Andhra Pradesh Coast as the winds speed up to 209 kilometers per hour. Andhra Pradesh has been put on high alert and people have been asked to stay put in their homes and not venture out in the sea.
The biggest city in the region, Chennai, has been largely affected by the cyclone. Many businesses have been closed in the aftermath of the storm, and all commercial and private flights have been canceled. Many of the flights were rescheduled for departure after the storm passed.
Apart from flight operations, the hurricane warning has caused many schools, government offices, and businesses to shut down. This has caused major disruptions in all areas including transportation, media, and broadcasting. Traffic along major highways has been affected, resulting in massive jams and delays.
The fishing communities are also severely affected by the cyclone and many of the fishermen have taken shelter in Andhra Pradesh. In addition, the states’ coastlines are vulnerable to floods as the heavy rains are likely to cause river levels to rise drastically.
The state government has taken enough precautions to deal with the cyclone Michaung. The Coastal Andhra and East Godavari districts have been put on high alert and the Navy and other rescue teams are also on standby to assist affected people. Special teams have also been deployed to evacuate people in the fishing villages which are the most vulnerable to the Cyclone.
Cyclones are common in the region, but the cyclone Michaung has caused a lot of damage. It has disrupted the normal life in Andhra Pradesh and affected the livelihood of many people. The government is doing its best to minimize the impact of the cyclone and ensure that people stay safe. However, people should remain prepared and take the necessary precautions to stay safe from natural calamities like these.
