As many of you are aware Cyclone Aila wrecked havoc on the coastal South 24 Parganas district of West Bengal on May 25, 2009.With winds of 120kmph, 10 feet high waves and a diameter of 250-350 km it flattened or washed away homes and flooded most of Sunderbans, Kakdwip, Sagar and surrounding areas.
