Amphan, the second super cyclone to form over the Bay of Bengal since 1999 and "a double challenge" due to COVID-19, made landfall in West Bengal at 2:30 pm on Wednesday, 20 May, and continued to cause destruction in the form of high-velocity winds and heavy rains till about early in the morning on 21 May. The Quint's reporter from Bengal gives a first-hand account of the ferocious storm from her 41st-floor residence in Kolkata.

    This was a category 2 cyclone. The wind speed never crossed 160 and she is terming this as a super cyclone. But really felt bad for poor people who lost everything.

    41st floor, Cable cut off, No electricity, can't go down by lift, she is soo much scared with self claimed upscale security, she also realised what others faced compared to her proudly proclaimed privileges. Very disturbing and funny dose of journalism. It seemed class and level bragging during a time of people's crisis. Again I want to say! Disgusting

    During such crisis situations, the Aggressive Christian evangelists & the Muslim tabligis are converting the Hindus & the people of India living in the state of West Bengal who have lost everything being affected by the cyclone Amphan. Please DO NOT DONATE TO THEM UN-NECESSARILY. Check their Sources, Affiliations & their Credibility 1st.

    Great reporting by Ishadrita indeed in the face of personal distress. Inspite of the terrifying circumstances you kept your wits about you and gave all of us a detailed description of this deadly disaster. Although I am sitting far away and watching this I can tell you that I am scared - I simply can't imagine the plight of the people who are at ground zero without any facilities. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the affected people ; one sincerely hopes timely aid reaches them.

    in 2014 vizag faced hudhud. our governments constantly advised people to store additional gas supplies, rations, candles, water, vegetables etc. hud hud is having wind power of more than 200 kmph. but we are saved my trees and plants. they have fallen and saved us. we are in 2nd floor of apartment. carrying water by climbing steps is very difficult. u r good self is in 41st floor. omg
