PM Narendra Modi ji is likely to visit the states of West Bengal and Odisha on this Friday to take stock of the damage and devastation caused by the cyclonic storm ‘Yaas’ that had hit these coastal states recently. First, the PM will land in Odisha state capital of Bhubaneswar where he would attend a review meeting prior to setting out for an aerial assessment and survey of the storm-battered Bhadrak and Balasore in the state. Next he would move towards West Bengal to assess the damages caused in Purba Medinipur, stated the officials. He is then likely to attend a review meet in West Bengal too.


On this Thursday too, the PM Modi chaired a meet regarding the outcome of the cyclonic storm Yaas and ordered the officials to take all the necessary steps to allow people to get back to their normal life again as soon as possible.



Despite the fact that power facilities have been put back in majority of the affected areas, as per the officials who attended the meet, damage and devastation triggered by inundation must be assessed and mended.

Nearly 106 National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) teams in total were deployed to handle the disaster. 46 NDRF teams each were assigned to Odisha and West Bengal and they have managed to rescue more than 1, 000 people and remove over 2, 500 poles or trees that had been uprooted due to the storm and had blocked the roads, as per the information provided through a release published post meeting.


Cyclone Yaas followed the Cyclone Tauktae that had hit the western shores of India a couple of days back causing enough damage in the states of Gujarat, Maharashtra and Karnataka. Within just a week after Tauktae, came the cyclone Yaas, this time arising over the Bay of Bengal and affecting the eastern shores of India. Both the cyclonic storms left behind a pretty long trail of devastation. As per the opinion of the experts, mass evacuation helped in saving many lives.


The intensity with which the cyclone had made its landfall on the eastern shores wasn’t as severe as predicted by the India Meteorological Department (IMD). But still, under its impact, the sea puffed up to nearly 4 meters, flooding the coastal villages in Bhadrak and Balasore where the landfall took place. More than a million residents of the low-lying belts were evacuated in the states of Bengal and Odisha.
