India tropical cyclone phalin 12 october 2013

Published on

India may have dodged a bullet as Cyclone Phalin strikes Bay of Bengal 12 October 2013. Cyclone Phalin is one of the most powerful cyclones in history, yet the death toll reported as of 14 October only 21. 900,000 residents were evacuated to shelters in schools and government offices. Authorities also moved food and medicine close to affected areas before the storm. Those preparations now are credited with the huge reduction in casualties compared with 1999's Cyclone Orissa, which killed 10,000 and caused more than $2 billion in damage. The comparatively low mortality this time may be result of effective strategic planning and collaboration (i.e., working together on a common goal) for becoming cyclone disaster resilient
