The way the cyclone Hudhud has battered the coast of Andhra and the city of Vishakapatnam, the experts say it is going to take decades to recover. This has happened despite the preparation and evacuation measures taken by the authorities and the prompt relief response from Army and Navy.
The storm is subsiding right now but do you know how the name for the storm has come up. Well, it has got a link with Israel. The national bird of Israel is Hudhud and it is from there that this cyclone got its name. Incidentally, Hudhud is a very colorful bird and it is spotted more in Europe and Africa.
Though the bird is colorful, the cyclone named after it has not been colorful but chaotic. The extent of damage is yet to be ascertained but primary reports suggest they stand at a whopping Rs 10000 crores for now. The governments of Andhra Pradesh and Odisha have gotten into action so we will know the clear picture in the coming days.
