Fani Leaves 35 Lakh Families In Dark

Bhubaneswar: Reeling under the aftereffects of Cyclone Fani, the Odisha government faces the daunting task of restoring electricity to nearly 35 lakh households. In the districts of Puri, Khurda and Cuttack, the power infrastructure has suffered massively as over 15 lakh electric poles were uprooted and lines were damaged due to fallen trees.

The scale of the damage and the mammoth task awaiting authorities was shown by US space agency NASA, which released images comparing the lighting in Bhubaneswar and Cuttack before and after the cyclone hit.
