Cyclone Michaung leaves trail of destruction In Andhra, T.N.

Cyclone Michaung, currently swirling over the Bay of Bengal, is poised to make landfall near Bapatla on the Andhra Pradesh coast, following its impact on Tamil Nadu, where at least eight people have lost their lives in rain-related incidents in Chennai. Anticipated to hit as a severe cyclonic storm, the cyclone is expected to bring a storm surge of 1-1.5 meters, particularly affecting the low-lying areas of south coastal Andhra Pradesh, with the peak surge over Bapatla and Krishna districts. The Andhra Pradesh government has issued alerts for eight districts, urging preparedness in the face of the cyclone's potential impact.

Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has declared the storm a major challenge, directing officials to prioritize life and property protection. Special officers have been appointed for affected districts, and relief efforts are underway, with over 300 camps set up for evacuated residents. Union Home Minister Amit Shah assured support to the Chief Ministers of Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, and Puducherry, with the National Disaster Response Force already deployed.

The India Meteorological Department's Director General, Mrutyunjay Mohapatra, warned of extremely heavy rainfall in coastal Andhra Pradesh. The cyclone's potential to cause significant damage, including uprooting trees and affecting infrastructure, is a concern. While rain has ceased in Chennai, inundation persists, and Tamil Nadu and Puducherry expect light to moderate rainfall. Chennai airport has resumed operations, prioritizing departures, and Odisha has deployed rescue teams in southern districts as a precaution, advising fishermen to stay ashore due to challenging sea conditions.
