May 26 2021 India’s west coast will welcome tropical cyclone “Yass” again on the 26th local time after it was hit by the strongest tropical cyclone ever recorded. Yass is expected to make landfall in the port of Damra on India’s east coast on the same day, and local authorities have moved hundreds of thousands of people.
West Bengal and Orissa have moved hundreds of thousands of residents ahead of schedule, India Today reported Wednesday. “This is a surprising situation,” said Mamata Banerjee, West Bengal’s chief minister. ”
Cyclone Yass, which was formed off the coast of the central Bay of Bengal and moving northwest at a speed of about 15 kilometers per hour, gradually strengthened and could reach the strongest storms, passing through the Northwest Bay of Bangladesh, Baladib and Balasol in Orissa, India, and then through parts of West Bengal.
Reported that “Yass” before the landfall, a storm hit the Hugli and Pagnas areas of West Bengal, lasted more than a minute, causing more than 40 houses to collapse, five injured, and two people were electrocuted.
