Cyclone 'Vayu': Power supply disrupted in 560 Gujarat villages

Power supply has been disrupted in nearly 560 villages of Gujarat due to cyclone 'Vayu' and all efforts are on to restore it, an official said on Thursday.

The 'Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Limited' (GUVNL) chalked out an action plan well in advance in view of the cyclone threat, the state government-promoted company's in-charge managing director Shahmeena Husain told.

"Around 561 feeder lines in Saurashtra and south Gujarat are affected due to the impact of cyclone 'Vayu'. We are confident that the power supply will be restored soon in the 560 affected villages," she said.

The GUVNL teams were finding it difficult to reach some of the water-logged coastal areas, she added.
