    We can’t control the cyclones but we can control the floods caused by cyclones to some extant. Odisha gets affected regularly by cyclones and the heavy downpour floods thereafter, now it is the time to wait, think, understand the underground flood control systems implemented by Japan and Singapore. These systems can help to save the fresh water in the underground tunnels and when it is required, it can be used for industrial, domestic and agricultural activities. Even if the initial results may not be so large but if is implemented around the industrial town where there are water scarcity during long summers and frequent floods then these methods will be useful in near future. Also in long run it will create a sense of confidence among the industrial houses and investors to choose Odisha as a final destination. I think Union government, State government and entities should start discussion on these methods.
