There is a risk of coastal clashes at sea
Yas crashed a few years ago. Orissa was devastated by the power of Yas. At that time Yas’s power was in Odisha but the coast of Bengal was in turmoil. Although it was not devastated by the storm like Amphan, the coast was battered by rough seas. There was also a downpour of rain. Once again, the coast of Bengal is in danger of being swept away by the cyclone Javad, which has accumulated energy in the Bay of Bengal. It is feared that the situation will change from tomorrow, Saturday.
The memory of Amphan in Bengal is fresh. The coastal areas, including Kolkata, were devastated by the storm. Looking at that, the state administration is extra cautious. Emergency services staff have already had their leave canceled. Holidays have been canceled in several departments, including the power department. It is learned that all the leave of the employees of the power department has been canceled till December 6. The regional managers of the power department will liaise with the officers in charge of each block and district.
