Amidst the coronavirus crisis, another calamity has affected humanity. Cyclone Amphan wreaked havoc in Bengal and Odisha on Wednesday destroying thousands of houses in the eastern part of the country. The cyclone is packing winds gusting at the speed of 185 kmph and has triggered torrential rains in the region. It is said to be one of the worst storms to have occurred in the Bay of Bengal over the years. At least 12 people have been killed in Bengal while two deaths were recorded in Odisha until Wednesday night. The cyclone has also affected the neighbouring nation of Bangladesh where at least six deaths were confirmed. Many others have been stuck in this cyclone which slammed into India’s coast on Wednesday afternoon.
