After the Srikakulam coast in Andhra Pradesh was hit by cyclone Phailin on Saturday night, the NDRF teams reached the spot and started the rescue work. The teams had, however, started the rescue operations much before the cyclone hit the coast. A NDRF official said, “The situation was very serious, it was hard to do the job. They couldn’t even stand properly in the wind.”
