Bengal bore the worst brunt with widespread damage across the state affecting 1.1 million people who were evacuated from their homes. The coastal districts of Kolkata , Howrah, Hooghly and other coastal towns namely Kakdwip, Digha, Mandarmani have been devastated and coastal areas are submerged under water in the pounding rains. Heavy winds uprooted the trees and blew off the roof tops. Telephone towers and electrical poles were uprooted, disrupting the communication networks. Several thousands of kutcha houses and temporary structures are completely destroyed. Although there has been limited loss of lives due to proactive steps taken by authorities, the state now stares at one of the most extensive reconstruction efforts as an estimated 10,000 villages and 52 towns came in the path of Cyclone Amphan.
IGNWT has deputed its Rapid Action Squad to conduct a rapid assessment of the damages and further plan for recovery and rebuilding of the lives of families affected by Cyclone Amphan.
