Powerful Cyclone Hits India

As Cyclone Phailin hit the Bay of Bengal in India on Saturday (October 12)
it flooded thousands of homes, killed at least five people and forced 800,000
others to evacuate.

In anticipation, amateur radio operators were ready to provide emergency
communications and help spread up-to-date information on the storms damage
and path.

Many mud homes and farms were destroyed, and uprooted trees blocked roads.
The windy and wet Cyclone had deluged some areas causing one of the largest
evacuations in India's history.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said he had directed the central government
extend all needed assistance to state officials.

The National Institute of Amateur Radio reports that it has several ham radio
operators involved. The cyclone did weaken when it reached the coast, but
its impact is still severe.

Jose Jacob VU2JOS and VU2MCW Mukesh Kumar Gola VU2MCW are to reach Odisha
and begin operating.

During the Paradwip Cyclone in 1999, the Chief Minister's house was without
power and telecommunications. It was then ham radio operators who provided
a link to rescuers and the outside world.

In the current disaster the army, air force and navy are helping in rescue
and relief operations. However more details are not immediately known due
to the large population involved and the normal slowness of official data.

Dear om Jim;

Ham teams help cyclone-hit India

In the aftermath of powerful Cyclone Phailin teams of radio amateurs are
working there round the clock.

The Cyclone came ashore at Odisha in the Bay of Bengal flooding thousands
of homes and forcing half a million people to leave early to seek to shelter
in one of India's biggest evacuations.

Jayu S. Bhide VU2JAU asks that the frequency of 7145 kHz be kept clear during
the disaster. In a QSO with them he has determined the team includes Dilip
VU2DPI, Mithilesh VU3BHI and Sameer VU2AOR.

India had issued a red alert as a massive cyclone bore down on the east coast,
an area known for disasters.

"It is raining heavily," said Jayu VU2JAU, "but so far no casualty was recorded.
Earlier they had six swept into the water. The rescue work is in progress
and not affected by rains."

The Cyclone has impacted a 150-kilometre stretch of coastline. Relief efforts
were under way, with free food being served in shelters.

Many mud homes and farms were destroyed, and uprooted trees blocked roads.
The windy and wet conditions remain some areas.

During Paradwip Cyclone in 1999 a government report put the death toll at
8,243 with 445,000 livestock lost. It took years for crop yields to recover.
