HudHud cyclone: Relief measures by Swayamsevaks


HudHud cyclone in Andhra Pradesh has caused extensive damage due to heavy torrential rains in three Coastal districts of Sriakakulam, Vijayanagaram and Visakhapatinam.  The districts were completely devastated with fallen trees, uprooted electrical poles blocking the roads, damaged vehicles, houses and roads.  Drinking water, milk, food, communication etc became scarce for the public leaving the place completely throwing into dark for almost four days initially.  Although much loss of human lives was not there, tremendous requirement for relief measures has to be taken in large scale. 
 
Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh expressed regret for the heavy loss of lives and property. Many Swayamsevaks came forward and visited the cyclone affected areas and helped with the relief activities.


Relief activities started:
Swayamsewaks around the affected areas came forward and coordinated with the government in conducting relief activities like removing trees blocking the roads. They also helped the people in the shelters with basic necessities like drinking water and food.
