See below the collection of photos showing the aftermath of cyclone Amphan after it went through Eastern India and Bangladesh border.

Yesterday, cyclone Amphan landed on the eastern India and Bangladesh border. Though it has been weakened, Amphan is still the strongest storm ever in the Bay of Bengal, leaving wreckages wherever it went through.

Before the storm had it landfall, both India and Bangladesh authorities tried to evacuate affected residents but the fact that millions of people would stay in the same place for safety also increases the risk of Covid-19 spread.

Almost all streets in affected areas are flooded.

Having said that, hundreds of people have been gathered at cyclone centers in both countries. Some wear masks while others don’t.

Still, many people are not evacuated to safe places.

The storm came with heavy rainfall and strong wind, making all the streets flooded while uprooting a lot of trees in the regions.

Meanwhile, villagers in affected areas had to reinforce embankments with soil to prevent flood. Once it happens, shabby huts of these people won’t be able to save their lives.

Due to the harsh weather, traffic gridlocks were unavoidable. Hundred trucks have been stranded on a bridge in Paradeep.
