Sunday Stills, the next challenge: The letter C
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.
