Cyclone Fani: Crane collapses in Bhubaneswar


Cyclone Fani continued to wreak havoc on Friday morning, after making landfall in Odisha, with capital Bhubaneswar bearing the brunt of it. The storm showed no sign of receding, leaving denizens in a state of panic. Hundreds of trees were uprooted, even as fire service personnel and members of Odisha Disaster Rapid Action Force struggled to make a move due to the heavy rain and winds.

Low-lying areas flooded, and roadside kioks were found upside down.

A crane installed at the premises of a high-rise building that was under construction near the Raghanathpur area collapsed. The failure of telecom services also added to the chaos.
