Two persons were killed in separate rain-related incidents in Visakhapatnam and Srikakulam districts of coastal Andhra Pradesh on Sunday as the very severe cyclonic storm Hudhud triggered heavy downpour in the region.

One person was killed when the compound wall of a building collapsed in Visakhapatnam district.

Another person died in Srikakulam district when a tree collapsed following pounding rains, according to State disaster management department.

The strong winds and heavy rains led to large-scale disruption of power lines in three coastal districts of Andhra Pradesh.

“Except East Godavari, power entirely failed in the three districts of Visakhapatnam, Vizianagaram and Srikakulam (which are expected to bear the brunt). There were gale winds. The situation is very severe. National Highway in the region has been shut,” Special Commissioner, State Disaster Management Authority, K. Hymavathi said earlier.
