Amphan makes landfall

Cyclone Amphan made landfall on Tuesday evening south of Calcutta. The closest SYNOP report from that part of India in this plotted 12 UTC chart for today is from the city of Dum Dum in West Bengal. It looks like the observations from nearby Calcutta have been suspended as they take cover from the cyclone.

A red alert has been initiated to sea bound fishermen and disaster management teams started evacuating villagers from the sea front.
