Amphan Cyclone: More than 14 million people of Kolkata are without power for the past 17 hours
Amphan super cyclone made landfall in West Bengal and Bangladesh precisely as predicted by the IMD. But it devastated many parts of West Bengal and killed around 15 people. Now more than 14 million people of Kolkata are without power for the past 17 hours.
It is due to the strong winds up to 185 kilometers per hour and waves up to 15 feet tall caused by the Amphan landfall near Sundarbans. West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee has said that the Amphan devastation is worse than the corona crisis and claims Rs. 1 lakh crore as its damages.
Indian Meteorological Department Predictions
IMD or the Indian Meteorological Department had been closely following the Amphan from its day of formation on May 13 until its landfall yesterday. It has saved many lives by evacuating more than five lakh people in West Bengal and one lakh people in Odisha.
Though Amphan did not hit Odisha, it has caused extensive property damage in most of its northern districts of Balasore, Jagatsingpur, Kendrapada, and Bhadrak. The gusty winds uprooted the electric posts, trees and flew away thatched roofs.
But the worst was reserved for West Bengal with the eye of the storm having a 30 km diameter, making the landfall near Sundarbans as predicted by IMD. Mrutyunjay Mohapatra is the director-general of the IMD.
Yesterday after the landfall of Amphan, he told media that it had taken course accurately predicted by IMD. Also, as per its forecast, it is only the east & west of Midnapore and the south and north of 24 Pragnas that were the worst hit by Amphan.
