The Cyclone was on Wednesday, 20 May. But on Sunday night, many areas of the city are still dark. Most of the affected areas, including Kolkata, have no water, electricity, phone, mobile phone and internet services.

Many places in Kolkata city’s still submerged under the waters. Netaji Airport of Kolkata seems like a naval port.

Thousands of trees have uprooted which closed road communications, Electric and mobile phone tower poles have broken or uprooted, which causes disruption of electricity supply and interrupts the mobile phone service.

Kolkata is still isolated from the rest of the state. All in all, the whole of Kolkata has turned into a haunted city. Work has started to activate water, electricity and telephone services on an emergency basis. The road cleaning is on.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Kolkata on Friday being invited by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. He took Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee by helicopter to visit the damaged areas of West Bengal affected by Cyclone Amphan.

People are dying due to COVID 19 coronavirus pandemic continuously. AS per the WORLDOMETER live report, till date (27/05/2020) the death toll rosed at 4,346, and the number of infected people increased to 151,876 in India. During coronavirus pandemic, the Cyclone Amphan is as like to pour water on a drowned mouse to the West Bengal as well as India.
