Cyclone Yaas’ impact on telecom minimal, 6 cr SMSes sent to alert people: Govt

Cyclone Yaas, packing winds of up to 130-145 kmph, whiplashed the country’s eastern coast on Wednesday, dumping heavy rain, damaging houses and farmlands.

The ministry of communications said on Wednesday that Cyclone Yaas’ impact on telecommunications services in worst-affected Odisha and West Bengal was minimal. The ministry credited this to the combined efforts of telecom service providers (TSPs) and infrastructure providers coordinated by the department of telecommunications (DoT).

“The combined efforts have ensured that restoration of the damaged network has commenced and even the minimal outages in the telecom networks will be restored very quickly,” the ministry said in release.
