Cyclone Yaas batters Bengal and Odisha, Rescue Works Underway to help lakhs influenced

Twister Yaas, pressing breezes of up to 130-145 kmph, whiplashed the country’s eastern coasts on Wednesday, unloading hefty downpour, harming houses and farmlands, and leaving, in any event, four people dead three in Odisha and one in Bengal authorities said.

Thick sheets of downpour obscured the tremendous coastline, as the typhoon made landfall around 9 am close to Dhamra port in Odisha, with flooding waters overwhelming the mud-and-cover houses in the low-lying regions, where a gigantic clearing drive has been included to move in excess of 20 lakh people to wellbeing.

The tempest, which had weakened during the evening, had left the waterfront states anxious, with the Bengal government asserting that at any rate one crore individuals have been influenced by the disaster hitherto, as it hollered on its dangerous way towards Jharkhand.

Seawater immersed a few towns in Bahanaga and Remuna blocks in the Balasore locale, and Dhamra and Basudevpur in the Bhadrak region, Odisha’s Special Relief Commissioner PK Jena said.
