Coringa is a tiny village of the East Godavari district, in Andhra Pradesh, India.

In 1789, a cyclone hit Coringa. A strong storm surge resulting from it killed 20,000.[1]

On November 16, 1839 another disastrous cyclone struck east India with terrible winds and a giant storm surge. Once again Coringa suffered great damage. More than 300,000 people died.[2][3][4]
