Cyclone Laila hit Andhra Pradesh's coast at Bapatla on Thursday evening, prior to which the state was already being severely battered by incessant rainfall. While the whole of AP's coastline was being affected, the southern coastline was more hit, and the worst-hit district was Prakasam.

Evacuated people were already sent to shelters and school buildings. Roads were inundated and electric poles and structures came crashing down all over the rainfall-hit areas. Many parts of the state saw the shut-down of power and transportation facilities. Moreover, several crops have been affected thanks to the rough weather.

Flights in AP have already been put on hold, and several trains and buses have been cancelled.

Cyclone Laila was reported to have weakened on Wednesday, and meteorologists are saying that it will weaken further, but an alert for inclement weather has been sounded for the next 48 hours in the state.

Meanwhile, the CM is set for an aerial survey of Prakasam district on Friday. An ex-gratia amoutn of Rs. 1 lakh has been announced for victims.
