The “very severe cyclonic storm” is expected to move further inland, heading for Varanasi, India’s spiritual capital.
Cyclone Yaas was churning with gusts of up to 95 km / h as the latest storm battered the Eastern Coast, just days after its damaging winds ripped through the other side of the country, killing 150.
The airport in West Bengal’s capital Calcutta was closed, as was the airport in the state capital Bhubaneswar.
Yaas – which experts say has been strengthening to a ‘very severe cyclonic storm’ over the past night – hit the state of Orissa on the eastern coast.
Mamata Banerjee, the premier of West Bengal, told reporters that about 20.000 mud homes and shelters were damaged by the storm.
