Key Highlights:

  • Indian Navy readies ships and aviation assets for Cyclone Remal relief.
  • Specialized diving teams and Flood Relief Teams (FRTs) on standby.

The Indian Navy has initiated comprehensive preparatory actions in line with Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to mount a credible Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief (HADR) response following the onset of Cyclone Remal. Cyclone Remal is expected to intensify into a severe cyclone and make landfall between Sagar Island in West Bengal and Khepupara in Bangladesh.

In anticipation of the cyclone’s impact, the Indian Navy has prepared two ships loaded with HADR and medical supplies for immediate deployment to ensure the safety and welfare of affected communities. Indian Naval aviation assets, including Sea King and Chetak helicopters, as well as Dornier aircraft, are on standby for rapid response operations.

Specialized diving teams equipped with necessary gear have been positioned in Kolkata to provide prompt assistance. Additional diving teams with equipment are on standby in Visakhapatnam, ready for quick deployment if required.

Furthermore, two Flood Relief Teams (FRTs) along with HADR and medical supplies are being positioned in Kolkata. Two additional FRTs each from Visakhapatnam and Chilka are prepared and on standby for rapid deployment at short notice.

The situation is being closely monitored at Naval Headquarters, with the Eastern Naval Command overseeing comprehensive preparatory actions. The Indian Navy remains vigilant and ready to provide immediate and effective assistance in response to Cyclone Remal, ensuring that all necessary measures are in place to mitigate the impact and support affected populations.
