As India continued to struggle with growing cases of COVID-19, another catastrophe marched towards the eastern coast of the country. Cyclone Yaas, packing winds at 145 kmph, made landfall near Dhamra port in Odisha on Wednesday, 26th May, 2021, and swept across the states of West Bengal, Odisha and Jharkhandleaving behind a trail of ruined homes and flooded farmland, forcing more than 21 lakh people to be evacuated to safe shelters. Electrical lines in these states were affected, causing power outages. Cars were also inundated by rising floods while infrastructures suffered destruction. As per the State Govt. of West Bengal, the cyclone has impacted at least one crore people and has damaged more than 3 lakh houses and 134 embankments.
While large areas continue to be out of electricity and mobile coverage, Magma HDI General Insurance has put in place service touchpoints to help customers resolve their Yaas-related queries speedily. The Company’s toll-free helpline now has a ‘skip the queue’ option for Yaas-affected customers. Customers can call on 1800 266 3202 and press 5 to talk directly to the customer care executive, without waiting in line. Special Nodal Officers and local coordinators have also been assigned across the states of West Bengal and Odisha, to assist those in need.
As the common man still grapples with coronavirus restrictions and its economic impact, such natural calamities have added fuel to the fire. Although mass evacuations and temporary shelters were successful in saving thousands of lives, the physical destruction caused is massive. However, like the country eventually emerges out of every misfortune, we are hopeful that the states will recover rapidly from this tragedy as well.
