Cyclone ‘Fani’  rolled through Odisha on Friday, packing rain and windstorm that gusted up to 175 kmph, leaving at least three people dead.

The extremely severe cyclonic storm ‘Fani’ or the’Hood of Snake’ made landfall around 8 a.m. in Puri, with roaring winds flattening huts, enveloping the pilgrim town in sheets of rain, and submerging homes in residential areas.

The state administration had evacuated nearly 11 lakh  people two days ahead of the cyclone .
