Amidst the continuing fight against COVID-19, Amphan cyclone wreaked havoc in the states of Bengal and Odisha on Wednesday.
Termed "extremely severe cyclonic storm" by the meteorological department, the Amphan Cyclone made landfall in both the states with copious amounts of rain, gusty winds, and lightning -- destroying everything in its path, leaving behind chilling visuals all around.
