Somolo island situated on the shore of Chilika Lake, Ganjam, Odisha is one of such places that
has been facing the adverse effects of cyclone since ages. The island is there since a longer period of time, where initially the fishermen from the neighboring villages started settling near the shore of the lake to access the lake and sea through the routes of the lake connecting the sea for fishing. In the fishermen settlement, where most of the houses are kutcha houses made up of vernacular building materials, are getting damaged due to cyclones.
