Yaas Cyclone followed by Deadly Covid-19 and AMPHAN devastated everything
By Bibhuti Ranjan Mishra - Project Leader
This is not a report but appeal followed by information on Cyclone Yass:-
Last year on May 19 we the people of Sundarbans were molested severely by the catastrophic Cyclone namely AMPHAN with a wind speed of 185 Kilometre /hour or more and that was the deadliest in its nature in terms of speed, power to destroy and to ruin the life and living of Sundarbans area and that was the deadliest cyclone ever the people of Sundarbans witnessed and in the recorded history of cyclone in Sundarbans as well. As a result almost entire Sundarbans was ruined and disrupted. Covid 19 started the disruption and AMPHAN put the momentum to disrupt everything.
The trees are fallen, salty water from the river encircling the villages pull down the embankments and the villages were submersed. Power supply was totally cut off. Drinking water was not available anywhere. Village roads were disconnected and communication with outer world was hardly possible for a long time. Floating dead body of livestock and carcasses of aquatic animal or fish polluted water bodies and entire environment was polluted to such an extent where no living being may survive. Each and every house was destroyed and stored food was spoiled thus everyone had to spend time without bread. Agricultural land was flooded with salty water and preserve seeds were ruined. That was on 19th May 2020 and 1st wave of Covid 19 was in full swing. The people of the area fight earnestly to overcome the odds and to survive anyway.
Just after a Year now we are facing Covid 19 2nd wave which is deadliest than 1st wave with an additional symptoms like Black Fungus. And just after one year of AMPHAN ‘flute’ Yaas, a cyclone of same rank as AMPHAN is hitting us on 26th May 2021 to left nothing except miseries to the people. Nobody knows how the people of the area will survive.
Thus it is our ardent appeal to stand by us and help us to help the victims with money, materials and so on.
I am requesting all concern to consider our appeal and let us alive not by the grace God but by the grace of humankind.
