Amphan and the city

Voices from Calcutta
"So far, yes, everyone is safe. Homes have had a lot of water seepage. Connectivity problems. Lot of damage to the city. Never been hit like this before. Food delivery has stopped. So that will be another problem"

-- Prochy Mehta, president, Calcutta Parsee Club


"All (is) well. But very limited telephone and data connectivity as of now"

-- Ratan Postwalla, active Club member

Tropical cyclone Amphan has caused widespread damage over East India and Bangladesh. At least 72 people have reportedly died in West Bengal, including 15 in Calcutta.
