NDRF sends 35 teams to Andhra for cyclone

New Delhi, Nov 26 : The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) has dispatched 35 rescue teams to the coastal regions of Andhra Pradesh which will face severe cyclonic storm Lehar Nov 28.

"Of the total teams, four are being kept as reserve at our base in Mundali and five others as standby at Guntur base to meet additional challenges," said an NDRF statement.

"The teams have been equipped with communication equipment to maintain smooth and coordinated operations even if normal communication lines get disrupted due to cyclone," it added.
