CYCLONE HUDHUD (DIDSASTER MANAGEMENT
Transcript of CYCLONE HUDHUD (DIDSASTER MANAGEMENT
The cyclone hit in the following places:
Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Odhisa and Nepal.
How did they get the name "Hudhud"?
How is it caused?
Under the influence of an upper air cyclonic circulation, a low pressure area is formed over Andaman Sea. It slowly consolidated and was upgraded to a depression by the India Meteorological Department (IMD).
While over open waters, the depression continued to encounter favourable environment, and a tropical cyclone formation alert (TCFA) was issued by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC).
The deep depression made its first landfall over Long Island, Andaman and had reached cyclonic storm intensity, naming it Hudhud.
After entering the Bay of Bengal, Hudhud continued to intensify the following day, and was upgraded to a severe cyclonic storm.
Hudhud underwent rapid intensification and developed an eye at its center. The storm later was monitored by the doppler weather radar stationed at Visakhapatnam.
In the following hours, the storm reached its peak intensity with a minimum central pressure of 960 mbar and three-minute average windspeed of 175 km/h.
Andaman and Nicobar Islands:
The authorities closed schools and cancelled ferry services in and around Andaman Islands. Fishermen were warned about the storm. The Andaman Trunk Road, one of the major roads traversing the island, was shut down after trees were uprooted due to the storm's force. Landslides were reported in the island causing some power and communication lines to fail.
On 14 October 2014, Cyclone Hudhud caused sudden weather changes in Nepal that appear to have resulted in an avalanche on Mount Dhaulagiri.
What is Hudhud?
Very Severe Cyclonic Storm Hudhud was the strongest tropical cyclone of 2014 within the North Indian Ocean, as well as the most destructive storm in the basin since Cyclone Jal in 2010.
: The local government made adequate arrangement to shift half a million people in all. Hudhud crossed the coast of Andhra Pradesh at 11:30 AM IST of October 12 near Pudimadaka, about 50 km from Visakhapatnam with winds exceeding 185 km/h. It was announced that Hudhud had caused at least 24 deaths within Andhra Pradesh and early estimates peg total damage costs at 100 billion rupees (US$1.63 billion). This makes Hudhud the first storm in the basin to cause at least $1 billion in damage since Jal in 2010.
At the time of the storm's landfall, strong winds and heavy rainfall commenced in southern Odisha districts leading to disruption in power supply. Wind speeds reaching 90 km/h were predicted in the region.
Maintaining intensity, it made landfall near Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh in the early hours of October 12. Bringing extensive damage to the coastal districts of Andhra Pradesh, Hudhud gradually weakened as it curved northwards over land. The storm continued its weakening trend and was last noted as a well-marked low pressure area over east Uttar Pradesh on October 14.
Preventive Measures To Be Taken
We should stay away from wall hangings and other things which are heavy and hung with a hook or a screw. In a frequent cyclone struck area we can built houses of mud and dry grass. We should keep in touch with the local radio, telephone, television and other communicative processes.
