Abstract: Tropical cyclone is a rapidly rotating storm system characterized by a low pressure center, strong winds, and a spiral arrangements of thunderstorms that produce heavy rain. Tropical cyclones typically form over large bodies of relatively warm water. On 6th October 2014 Hud Hud originates from a low pressure system that formed under the influence of an upper air cyclonic circulation in the Andaman Sea. On 9th October 2014 the IMD department classified the Hud Hud as a very severe cyclonic storm on IMD scale and category 4 on Staffir-Simpson scale. The cyclone hit the coast of Visakhapatnam on 12th October 2014 at wind speed of 175 km/h which caused extensive damage to the city and the neighbouring districts. The remote sensing technique used here is NDVI. NDVI will separate vegetation and nonvegetation part. The main objective is change detection. The NDVI will be classified in ERDAS and calculated the area using ARCGIS. The satellite data of 4th October, 14th October 2014 and 7th December 2014 has been taken to show the before the cyclone, after the cyclone passes and after a month of cyclone.
