The Kali pooja pandal fell down due to the high velocity of wind in Cooch Behar on Diwali Day, October 24. Light rain also occurred at Cooch Behar on Monday morning. After that, strong winds appeared in the afternoon.

IMD has also warned that the expectation of heavy rain can’t be denied in West Bengal. Several districts in South Bengal have been alerted about light to heavy rain along with thunderstorms in the next few days.

Meanwhile, National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) teams were deployed to Bakkhali sea beach in West Bengal to evacuate people to safe locations as rain began to fall.

Cyclonic storm Sitrang is currently travelling near latitude 17.00N and longitude 88.30E. It is about 520 km south of Sagar Island in West Bengal and 670 km south-southwest of Barisal in Bangladesh.
