The very severe cyclonic storm, PHAILIN over east central Bay of Bengal moved westwards and hit by evening of 12th October, 2013 as a very severe cyclonic storm with a maximum sustained wind speed of 190-200 kmph.Cyclone Phailin had a major impact on shelters in the coastal districts, although not impacting concrete (pucca), traditional kutcha (wood, mud, thatch) shelters of the poor and marginal groups.

Subsequent flooding also hit marginal communities more significantly, in cyclone and flood affected districts the Dalit population is between 18% and 22%. There are chronic challenges with regard to water supply (contamination/ salinity), sanitation and hygiene have increased the vulnerability in particular to coastal communities to Diarrhea, water borne diseases, skin diseases for communities that are using contaminated water for their household needs.

The cyclone has had a major impact on livelihoods, disrupting fishing communities through loss of boats and nets, and access to daily wage earnings and severely affecting agricultural and horticultural livelihoods including staple crops, vegetable crops and cash crops.
