Cyclone Amphan left a trail of destruction in Odisha as it triggered heavy downpour coupled with high-velocity winds, while hurtling towards the West Bengal coast on Wednesday. Strong winds with an intensity of 160 kilometres per hour have commenced in coastal West Bengal districts. More than 1.41 lakh people living in low-lying areas and thatched and mud houses in the vulnerable coastal regions were evacuated and shifted to cyclone shelters.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banarjee said the North and South 24 Parganas districts were the worst hit and that Bengal "will have to re-build everything".

Odisha districts Bhadrak and Balasore will continue to have a damaging impact for 2-3 more hours. After this Odisha will not have any damaging impact," said Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) Chief Mrutyunjay Mohapatra.
