There was no loss of human lives in Andhra Pradesh and West Bengal. Cyclone Fani affected three states namely Odisha, Andhra Pradesh and West Bengal.

The Minister of State for Home Affairs Nityanand Rai, Odisha reported that 64 lives were lost, 5.56 lakh houses and huts were damaged, 6,281 cattle were lost, 1,48,663 hectare of crop land affected and 6,416 boats and 8,828 nets were damaged.

Cyclone Fani:
The records of the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said that the Cyclone Fani is the first severe cyclonic storm to have formed in April in India’s oceanic neighbourhood since 1976.
The cyclone is a consequence of global warming and it is formed due to the warming of the Bay of Bengal basin atleast 28°C to support the formation of a cyclone. Tropical cyclones in the Indian neighbourhood begin as depressions or a gradual build-up of warm air and pockets of low pressure. About 35% of such formations intensify to cyclones and only 7% intensify to very severe cyclones.
Fani has been categorised as an extremely severe cyclone as the wind speed at their centre ranged from 167 to 221 kph. The Cyclone originated quite close to equator and took a long route to reach the landmass.
