Amphan: Heavy rains in India and Bangladesh as cyclone bears down

Amphan: Heavy rains in India and Bangladesh as cyclone bears down
BBC:

Heavy rains and winds have been reported in eastern India and Bangladesh, with a super cyclone expected to make landfall in hours.

Both countries have evacuated millions of people in preparation for Cyclone Amphan, which is approaching from the Bay of Bengal.

India's met department tweeted that Amphan was on course to make landfall "between afternoon and evening".

The coronavirus outbreak is making it harder for officials in both countries.

India and Bangladesh have asked for schools and other buildings to be turned into temporary shelters - but they need more than usual, in order to house people while maintaining social distancing.

Police in India's West Bengal state, which is expected to be badly affected by the storm, told the BBC that people were unwilling to go to the shelters because they were afraid of contracting Covid-19.
