As Cyclone ‘Amphan’ made landfall between Digha in West Bengal and Hatiya island in Bangladesh, several areas in the state and Odisha witnessed heavy rainfall and strong winds gusting up to 185 km/hr. While people from coastal areas have been evacuated, many took to social media to share the status of the storm from their location.
