Central agencies to help Goa prepare for mock cyclone

With cyclone activity on the rise along the western coast, state and central agencies will simulate a severe cyclone and test Goa’s ability to respond to such a natural disaster at five locations. The mock drill will be conducted on March 3 with the National Disaster Management Agency (NDMA) and the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) assisting and identifying the gaps in the response mechanism.
