CESC Gears Up To Yaas Challenge; Bengal, Odisha On Yellow Alert

Kolkata: The CESC Limited has made elaborate arrangements in anticipation of Cyclone Yaas which is scheduled to intensify into a severe cyclonic storm by Wednesday afternoon. Last year, Kolkata’s power supply authorities were found wanting after another super cyclone Amphan.

Several areas went powerless and remained so for days after Amphan wreaked havoc on the city of joy.

“We are prepared with all the teams despite coronavirus-related issues. Efforts will be made to arrange for two vans in each ward in Kolkata and adjoining areas like Maheshtala, Howrah, Serampore,” CSEC’s vice-president, distribution Abhijit Ghosh was quoted as saying by Bengali television channel ABP Ananda.

Last year, CESC was short-staffed during the lockdown when Amphan ravaged the city. The power supply body has also vowed to attend to faults after the storm is over. “We will try to act faster as there will enough staff in the teams to attend to the consumers’ calls,” Ghosh said.

The state governments and the NDRF teams are also on their toes to avert any larger calamity like last time. Almost 10 lakh people have been evacuated from Bengal’s Sagar and East Midnapore districts.

Yellow alert has been announced both in Odisha and West Bengal after cyclone Yaas moved slowly north-northwestwards and is expected to intensify further into a severe cyclonic storm during the next 12 hours, according to IMD.

Yaas is very likely to make landfall near Balasore in north Odisha with 155 kmph to 165 kmph speed, gusting to 185 kmph, around noon on Wednesday, May 26, said the Met department on Monday.
