Extremely severe cyclone Fani, the strongest cyclone hitting India in 20 years, made its landfall on India's east coast last Friday (3 May). Despite the government’s prompt evacuation of 1.2 million people, the cyclone has made widespread devastation, destroying many houses, schools, crops and livestock. Families have lost all possessions and are living in dire situation. Nearly 40 deaths have been reported in Odisha state so far.
Plan International has finished assessing the situation on the ground and is coordinating with local partners to mount an emergency response.
