But now after the effect of Cyclone Fani the coconut trees are falling down one after the another due to the soil erosion caused by the rough sea waves at RK beach here at the city.

The devastating effect of cyclone Fani was seen at the coastal areas of Visakhapatnam, Vizianagaram, Srikakulam, Odisha, and West Bengal in the last week.
