    As of now, Fani is the equivalent of a category 4 hurricane.

    Officials in India mobilized a massive evacuation effort on Thursday as the country braced for landfall from a potentially devastating Cyclone Fani.

    Nearly one million people are being evacuated ahead of the cyclone's looming strike on the eastern India coastline as the week ends. One government official said the evacuation effort is the largest in the nation's history, according to The Associated Press. Nearly 100,000 of those evacuated are from the city of Puri alone, according to BBC News.
