  • Description: Yaas, a massive cyclone did not hit West Bengal directly but its coastal areas experience you destruction apart from large scale flooding. Coastal areas experienced squalls in the range of 100 km or more, apart from large-scale flooding. This happened primarily because the storm’s landfall overlapped with high tide. But so far, only one person has reportedly died as a consequence of the cyclone. The ‘human wall’ was made by people in the G Plot of Pathar Pratima block in the Sundarbans. As Yaas subsided May 26, 2021, residents noticed the embankment on the Jagaddal river adjoining Sitarampur village beginning to wobble. According to state government sources, nearly 1.5 million people were evacuated before and during the disaster into 14,000 flood shelters, both formal and temporary ones. The residents of West Bengal's Sundarbans got saved from the cyclone due to timely evacuation. However, they have been facing a huge loss since then. Most of the region underwater currently e will take a lot of time for the the lives of the rescued to be revived.
