Bhubaneswar: An inter-ministerial Central team is in Odisha to assess the damage caused by Cyclone Fani that hit the state's coastal districts on May 3 leaving 64 dead, an official said.

The nine-member team is being led by Additional Secretary in the Ministry of Home Affairs Vivek Bharadwaj.

Before beginning an on-the-spot assessment of the damage by visiting the affected areas yesterday, team members will be briefed by Special Relief Commissioner B P Sethi, he said.

The team, to be split into two groups, will visit Puri and Khurda districts yesterday and Tuesday. The two districts are among the places worst-hit by the cyclone.

The team will also visit some of the affected areas in the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation area on Wednesday before holding a meeting with senior state government officials, including Chief Secretary A P Padhi.

After completing the visit, the team will submit its report to the Centre, he said.
