About one lakh food packets would be dispatched to the cyclone-affected Visakhapatnam and other districts, East Godavari district collector Neetu Prasad said here today.

“As per a request made by the government, nearly one lakh food packets would be supplied from East Godavari district to cyclone affected people at Visakhapatnam and other places,” she said.

The district collector is monitoring the cyclone situation along with special officer K S Jawahar Reddy and taking all precautionary measures.

She said there was disruption of power supply in the Agency areas of Addateegala, Peddapuram and Talleruvu mandals due to heavy gales and it would be restored shortly after electricity officials restore power supply.

Uppada beach road in Kakinada rural mandal was damaged due to rains near Konapakapeta. Teams have been pressed into service in different parts of the coastal mandals. As a precautionary measure, 30,000 people have been shifted to 72 relief camps in the district, she added.
