Earlier, the chief minister directed officials to file a report on the damage caused by the cyclone within two days, in order to assure that speedy help is provided to the farmers and villagers.
Noting that six persons had lost their lives due to the natural disaster, the chief minister directed officials to provide aid of Rs 4 lakh to the families of the deceased.
The CM also ordered officials to ensure early restoration of electricity in Raigad district, where uprooting of poles has led to a disruption in the power supply.
