Big tree falls on car during cyclonic in northeastern India, causing damage

During the ferocious winds and torrential downpours of Cyclone Remal in northeastern India’s Assam, a large tree broke and fell onto a car, causing significant damage to it. 


The incident took place at Haflong in Dima Hasao district and the video went viral on May 28. 

Visuals showed a powerful storm with high winds and heavy rain causing a large tree to break and fall onto a parked car, crushing its roof. Other waste stuff was scattered around the area, and a few people were present nearby.


According to reports cyclone Remal has triggered heavy rain and wind in Assam and several districts are on high alert. A red alert has been issued for Chirang, Goalpara, Baksa, Dima Hasao, Cachar, Hailakandi, and Karimganj districts while an Orange alert has been issued for Dhubri, South Salmara, Bongaigaon, Bajali, Tamulpur, Barpeta, Nalbari, Morigaon, Nagaon, Hojai and West Karbi Anglong districts.


Incessant rain and strong wind disrupted the power supply in most of the affected districts including Guwahati since late last evening. Several district administrations have closed schools for today as precautionary measures and Northeast Frontier Railway has also canceled several trains. 


Assam State Disaster Management Authority (ASDMA) has directed all the DDMAs to review the situation and, as per need, plying of boats may be regulated in the mainstream of Brahmaputra River particularly in Dhubri, Goalpara, South Salmara-Mankachar, Bongaigaon and Barpeta districts and also Barak and Kusiara rivers in the Barak Valley districts.

State government has taken extensive measures to ensure the safety of its citizens in the wake of the rainfall and wind speeds owing to Cyclone Remal. National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and the State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) are on standby and control rooms are operational, while asking people to cooperate with local administration.


Notably, the Indian Meteorological Department has warned of extremely heavy rainfall in Goalpara, Dima Hasao, Cachar and Karimganj districts today.
