After claiming multiple lives and leaving a trail of destruction in coastal West Bengal on Wednesday, the Super Cyclonic Storm ‘Amphan' moved north northeastwards and weakened into a Deep Depression, laying centred over Bangladesh, about 270 km north-northeast of Kolkata. "There have been casualties. I will announce a compensation of Rs 2.5 lakh to the families of those who died in cyclone Amphan," West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee said.
