>> I am situated in one of the areas badly affected by the super cyclone
>> that hit the eastern part of India last evening.
>> Even though I live in an urban area, there is significant damage around.
>> Several trees and electric lines have been uprooted, vehicles and roads are
>> affected; external features of many buildings, like glass windows and water
>> tanks, are damaged.
>> There was a big transformer explosion 3kms from where I live, and there's
>> been no electricity since 7pm last evening. It's the same in different
>> places of the city.
>> I'm not quite sure, but the electricity should be restored by today or
>> tomorrow. However, since it's quite common here to have broadband fibre
>> cables stretched through poles instead of underground, those may be damaged
>> too, and would take a longer time to get fixed: maybe further aggravated by
>> the COVID situation. Wireless reception is very poor too - barely loading
>> webpages, if at all.
>> Hence, I would unfortunately not be able to join the meetings until
>> things come in place. I'll try to continue text based communication from
>> the phone, once the network revives. However, the battery will die soon,
>> and so there's a lot of uncertainty until electricity is restored. I'll
>> reach back when things are normal, hopefully in a couple of days or two.
