How well can India handle a cyclone similar to Hurricane HarveyMost of us have followed the major hurricane to hit Texas,USA a few days ago.This hurricane ripped thorough Texas bringing 52 inches (132 cms) of rain, claiming 70 lives so far.The loss of property and economic cost of the hurricane is estimated around 81-108 billion dollars (more than the GDP of many African and South American countries). The loss of human lives is said to be remarkably low for a Category 4 hurricane, thanks to the early warning systems,mass evacuation and rescue systems in place.

What can the Indian system learn from the experience of USA. How well are we geared up currently. Expert please express your views.
