Cyclone Phailin: An all time record 700,000 people evacuated

Above 7 lakh people were evacuated from the storm's path, in what is said to be the biggest peacetime human movement in the country in 23 years. 

More than 1,700 soldiers besides rescue teams from the navy were kept on standby for emergencies.

The central (UPA) government and state governments of Andhra Pradesh and Orissa need to be complimented for this remarkable feat.
