Cyclone Fani Live Updates: Cyclone weakens into cyclonic storm, to move into Bangladesh by noon

Cyclone Fani, one of the strongest storms to batter the Indian subcontinent in decades, entered West Bengal post midnight on Saturday, hours after making landfall and causing havoc in Odisha on Friday. According to the Meteorological department, the extremely severe cyclonic storm relatively weakened after entering coastal Odisha and transformed into “very severe” as it approached Bengal. The cyclonic story crossed Kharagpur and is likely to continue further in North-East direction with a wind speed of 90 km/hour.

Wind gusting at over 100 kmph, accompanied by heavy rains, Fani lashed cities and towns in coastal Bengal including Digha, Mandarmani, Tajpur and Contai while the effects of the storm could also be felt in cities like Kharagpur and Burdwan as trees were uprooted and metal hoardings gave way.
