About one lakh food packets would be dispatched to cyclone-affected Visakhapatnam and other districts, East Godavari district collector Neetu Prasad said on Sunday.

“As per a request made by the government, nearly one lakh food packets would be supplied from East Godavari district to cyclone affected people at Visakhapatnam and other places,” she said. The district collector is monitoring the cyclone situation in the district along with special officer K.S. Jawahar Reddy and taking all precautionary measures. She said there was disruption of power supply in the Agency area of Addateegala, Peddapuram and Talleruvu mandals due to heavy gales and it would be restored shortly after electricity officials restore power supply.

Uppada beach road in Kakinada rural mandal was damaged due to rains near Konapakapeta due to tidal waves. Teams have been pressed into service in different parts of the coastal mandals, she added, “As a precautionary measure 30,000 people have been shifted to 72 relief camps in the district. High alert was ordered in the coastal mandals to take all precautions to meet the heavy rains due to cyclone in the district.”
