The north eastern state of Nagaland faced one of the worst natual calamities in recent history of the country.

India’s cyclone scenario

2. Eastern part of India is more susceptible to cyclones including the state of Gujarat. The total estimated land area susceptible to cyclones is 8%.

3. 80% of total cyclones which reach India originates from the eastern part of India.

4. Maximum destruction zone is the 100 KM from the centre of the cyclone.
