Almost all the states of the Northeast including West Bengal have been affected due to cyclone Remal. Many areas of these states were submerged due to heavy rains. Roads were washed away due to the rising waters of rivers, due to which normal life is being greatly affected. More than 2,140 trees were uprooted and about 1,700 electricity poles also fell due to the effect of Cyclone Remal in West Bengal. Due to heavy rains on Tuesday, the road connecting Haflong-Silchar in the Dima Hasao district of Assam was washed away. At present, the Haflong-Silchar connecting road has been closed until June 1.
