LETTER-WRITING is an important channel of communication between people who are geographically distant from one another. In earlier times when the telephone and e-mail were not available, the only means of communication between people was through letters.
So, here I am going to show how you can write a letter. In this article, we will provide you with detailed information regarding the formal letter format about a cyclone. Read on to know everything about formal letter format. Below I have given the full format of a letter, by following which you can write the letter and can apply for.
Dist. 24 Parganas,
April 16, 1989
My dear Ranjan,
Perhaps you have read in the papers that there was a cyclone in these parts on the 10th instant. It began to drizzle from noon with occasional bursts of wind.People talked among themselves that it was cyclonic weather, but nobody thought that the real thing was so close upon. About midnight the cyclone burst in full fury. It seemed Nature had gone mad. We had shut all the doors and windows of our pucca building; still we could hear the roar of blasts and crash of falling trees. Even the doors and windows began to rattle as by earthquake.
After ranging thus in full fury for about the whole night, the cyclone passed away towards dawn. We went out at once to see the state of things in the village. What met our eyes beggars description. About half the katcha houses had been blown down, the courrugated iron roofs of a few sheds had been torn away from their walls and carried to a long distance. Of trees very few were intact. Thank God, there was no loss of life, but loss of property was very heavy.
Relief measures were taken in hand at once. Those who had lost their dwellings were given shelter in the school building. Dry foods were supplied to the needy: a rich merchant of the locality opened a free kitchen for them. Government also have been giving loans to those who require them. But so great was the damage that it will take long for many to repair it.
With love and best wishes,
