Sunday Stills, the next challenge: The letter C

C for Cyclone- Cyclone Hudhud

Deadly Tropical Cyclone Hudhud Strikes India on October 12

Hudhud was the equivalent of a strong Category 3 hurricane with winds sustained at 200 kph (125 mph) before making landfall on Sunday morning near Visakhapatnam.

Hudhud caused extensive damage to the city of Visakhapatnam and the neighboring districts .

Visakhapatnam is now bereaved of its greenery. 80% trees are uprooted except coconut and palm trees . We were confined to our flat for six days without electricity and drinking water. I could not go out and take pictures as lift was not working.

Now Visakhapatnam does not looks like  the photos i have posted before of lush green city and Vuda park.  Its impact was more drastic on the lives of the poor, the slum dwellers and fishing villages along the coast.

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing thought, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  3. Oh, the devastation is awful. Unfortunately, it’s always the poor who suffer the most when such calamities arise. That broken boy sculpture somehow says it all.

    • It was horrific experience LS. Especially 80% trees gone. City is looking naked. It will take lot of time or years to grow them.
