Cyclone Remal weakens, leaves trail of destruction in Bengal

| @indiablooms | 27 May 2024, 09:32 am

Heavy rains and strong winds triggered by Cyclone Remal uprooted trees and destroyed thatched houses in several districts of West Bengal, mainly in coastal areas, on Monday.

According to reports, one person died after a portion of a building collapsed in Kolkata's Entally region.

Several people were also injured due to the building collapse, hours after the cyclone made landfall between the coasts of West Bengal and adjoining Bangladesh.

Around 1.10 lakh people have been shifted from low-lying areas of the state.

As a precautionary measure local train service in the suburban Sealdah South Section was suspended.

Similarly, flight operations at the Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport were shut down between 12 noon on Sunday and 9 am on Monday.

340 domestic and 54 international flights were reportedly cancelled.
