Cyclone Hudhud threatens Andhra Pradesh Rescue teams deployed

Thousands have been evacuated from the coastal districts of Andhra Pradesh as Hudhud, a very severe cyclonic storm, races towards the state and neighbouring Odisha. The cyclone has picked up speed – from 120-130 kilometres per hour or kmph to 155-165 kmph – and could hit the coast at a wind speed of 170-180 kmph, according to the Met department. More than 100 power boats and 350 cyclone shelters have been kept ready while 10 teams of the Odisha Disaster Rapid Action Force and eight NDRF teams were deployed in areas that were affected by Cyclone Phailin last year.
