All were seeing TV movie with much interest Suddenly current went off at 11.30 pm sharp! Rain started with howling sound at a less decibel At first plunging the whole town in black out state!
Cyclonic storm Thane hit the shore at 70 Kmph first; Then went on developing speed to 80, 100, 140 Kmph Drummed out all zinc boards of shop names everywhere!
Like T Rex dinosaur Thane knocked doors and windows Till they all broke open and entered houses sans mercy Smashed all utensils, lights, boxes and flower pots....!
Stripped off all leaves from avenue trees in all streets Rooted out as many trees as possible from the ground! And left leaf less trees as skeletons standing on streets Also, twisted and broke as many lamp posts as possible!
In many places carried away PVC overhead tanks of houses, Twisted and broke all water pipe lines connected to tanks With howling noise Thane cyclone crossed town only at 10 am!
From Bay of Bengal Thane cyclone went across main land Causing devastation beyond imagination to Arabian sea! Everywhere destruction of properties and lives went on Followed by rain nonstop all day long unabatedly on Dec. 30!
New Year eve became a mourning day for many stranded House less, food less and water less and current less...! Clearance of debris of colossal level would take 10 days Horror of Thane cyclonic storm made indelible mark on all!
New Year day dawned without much delight in all houses In some main streets power supply is restored to normalcy! Shops and water supply have started to give relief to all Never again no one wants to see such a havoc even in dreams!
