Cyclone Fani, which is spreading across the entire coastal belt in India, has affected the movement of several trains, thus causing a lot of inconvenience to passengers. The East Coast Railways have also issued a statement saying as many as 103 trains had been cancelled in Odisha alone as Cyclone Fani will make a landfall in the state on May 3, reported local media in the state. As many as 43 trains connected to south India have also been cancelled or delayed. As per the railways, these trains that run between Howrah and Puri and other South India destinations have been halted due to the ‘yellow alert’ issued by  the weather department over Cyclone Fani. While South Eastern Railway zone has cancelled 17 trains between Puri and South India, a total of 26 trains originating from South India will not run on the scheduled routes today.

The Railways will also carry special patrolling as part of its precautionary measures to minimise the damage due to cyclone. The Bhadrak-Bhubaneswar-Puri-Visakhapatnam section of the Railways will not run when the cyclonic storm will pass the Odisha coast. Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has said that around 8 lakh people will be evacuated from the vulnerable areas by Thursday. The West Bengal government has also made elaborate precautionary arrangements to tackle its affects.
