Chennai sources stated that chief minister K Palaniswami said the death toll in cyclone ‘Gaja’ has touched 33 and left a trail of destruction across six districts of Tamilnadu with 30,000 electricity poles and over a lakh trees getting uprooted.  As per report he maintained that the impact of cyclone was less as 82,000 people were evacuated to 471 relief centres well in advance. Furthermore 20 men, 11 women and 2 boys died in cyclone related incidents, and as of now, 1,77,500 people have been housed in over 351 camps, the chief minister said, adding food, and medical amenities were being provided to them by the government.



Meanwhile the chief minister, speaking to reporters at Vanavasi near Salem, said that cattle, including goats, and wild animals including deer, have perished. He said “It has now been estimated that uprooted trees alone were 1,27,000 and there is a possibility of the numbers going up”.

Moreover on complaints from people in cyclone hit districts that they did not get food, he said there was no such thing anywhere. Food was stocked in advance to make it available for people. Accordingly “District Collectors and ministers from the respective districts are camping in affected areas and carrying out relief operations on a war footing.” He said Milk was sought and it has been dispatched and adding five more ministers have been deputed to oversee relief work.
