Major relief operation underway following Cyclone Fani

A major clean-up operation is underway on the east coast of India following the devastation left behind by Cyclone Fani.

The Hindustan Times reports that some residents of Odisha state have grown restive over the pace of relief efforts, with the local government starting distribution of aid four days after the cyclone hit.

More than a million people were successfully evacuated before Fani made landfall, India’s strongest summertime cyclone in the last 43 years.
