On May 3, 21 of Odisha's 30 districts were hit by the cyclone Fani. With 175-185 kmph wind and very heavy rainfall, this was the worst cyclone that Odisha had witnessed in the past 20 years. In anticipation of its landfall, 1,160,529 people were evacuated and relocated to relief camps. At least 30 people died due to the cyclone. There was also a breakdown of road and electricity infrastructure. The state capital, Bhubaneswar, its airport, the temple town of Puri and Cuttack experienced power breakdowns. In the rural areas, several kutcha houses were damaged and the livelihoods of the fishing and agricultural communities uprooted. As many as 5,244 primary schools, 547 secondary schools, 107 residential schools and 180 higher education institutions were also damaged.
