Cyclone Amphan more destructive than Aila: UN

May 22, 2020 12:14 IST

Cyclone Amphan, which has killed 77 people and left thousands homeless in West Bengal, is now considered even more destructive than Cyclone Aila which slammed southern Bangladesh and eastern India in 2009, the UN has said. Cyclone Amphan, the strongest to hit the region in nearly two decades, made landfall on Wednesday evening. It has battered several parts of the state, washing away bridges and swamping low-lying areas. Power and telecommunications have been affected across the cyclone-affected areas.
