  • Cyclones Hit Amala and Cuddalore this week Whilst not as bad as Cyclone Thane in 2011, Amala and the Cuddalore region has been hit by high winds and flooding.  Many trees have come down and fences blown over, even the front wall in the home has collapsed in places.  Everyone is safe in Amala but there is lots of damage all around.  Please if you are able to help us do the repairs every penny sent in will be gratefully received.  More details will be in the newsletter coming out very soon.  Pictures are available on our facebook page together with some here.  Some of the photos are of Amala and some of the surrounding area in Cuddalore.
