For last few days, I am keeping my eyes on almost all the major online based newspapers in India & Bangladesh. As Cyclone Fani made landfall in Odisha and now moving towards the Indian state West Bengal. Both the Indian and Bangladesh Meteorological Department projected that the Cyclone will cross over both the nation.

India: Odisha

As the Cyclone already made its initial landfall in Odisha, reports & images of the devastation has already started coming in. Here is a little a video clip from the YouTube channel of Associated Press that displays the fury of this Cyclone.

The death of 8 individuals from this state has already been reported by The Indian Express. The number will more likely to increase.

India: West Bengal

The Indian Civil Aviation authority has advised to cancel all the flight operations from Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose Intl. Airport from Friday 3pm to Saturday 8am(IST) which is located in the West Bengal.


Ahead of the landfall in Bangladesh, the Government has taken steps to move 1.2 million people to various Cyclone Shelters. More than 4 thousands of Cyclone Shelters has been prepared in 19 districts to accommodate people who are within the trajectory path of the cyclone.

I will be updating this post as the time passes by. So, feel free to come back to get the updated content.
