New Delhi: As cyclone “Hudhud” advances towards Odisha and Andhra Pradesh, railways have cancelled the movement of about 40 trains between Bhubaneswar and Visakhapatnam and diverted many trains to other routes for safety.
Tirupati-Bhubaneswar Express, Bangalore-Bhubaneswar Premium Special, Jagadalpur-Howrah Samaleswari Express, Bhubaneswar Junagarh Express, Visakhapatnam-Secunderabad Express, Visakhapatnam-Guntur Express and Tirupati-Visakhapatnam Express are some of the trains which have been cancelled as a precautionary measure, said a senior Railway Ministry official.
East Coast Railway has made elaborate arrangements to meet the situtation that could arise out of the cyclonic storm and heavy rains in the region.
While steps have been taken for early restoration of train services and railway track, if affected by Hudhud, a round-the-clock disaster management cell has been set up at its headquarters in Bhubaneswar and at Divisional Headquarters at Visakhapatnam, Khurda Road and Sambalpur. PTI
