    Background: ANDHRA PRADESH & TAMIL NADU STATES,INDIA

    Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N.T. Rama Rao visited the cyclone-hit south eastern parts of the country on November 16. The Prime Minister flew over the affected region, where more than 160 people are estimated to have died and over a million have been made homeless by widespread flooding. The storms badly damaged India's main rocket testing centre near Madras, the capital of Tamil Nadu. The Prime Minister announced an immediate relief grant of 12 million US dollar to the states after his visit. Troops have launched a massive rescue operation across the region, including the despatch of eight rescue boats to the island of Sriharikota, off the Andhra Pradesh coast, after the bridge linking it to the mainland was washed away. The storm first hit Tamil Nadu before turning north and sweeping into Andhra Pradesh.
