Delhi: Wall collapse and uprooting of trees triggered by 'Hudhud' and heavy rains on Sunday claimed three lives in Visakhapatnam and Srikakakulam districts that bore the brunt of the cyclone.

Normal life was thrown completely out of gear as winds with a speed of 170 to 180 kmph battered Visakhapatnam, Srikakulam and Vizianagaram districts.

The very severe cyclonic storm made landfall in Visakhapatnam before noon today. The gale, accompanied by heavy downpour, resulted in trees being uprooted and roofs of thatched huts and sheds being swept away.
