One person lost his life after drowning in a water body and the other was killed after a wall collapsed on him.Crops have been extensively damaged and a couple of makeshift houses also collapsed in the region due to speedy winds.

Efforts are on to restore power outage and road connectivity in several areas.

According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), the storm has moved towards east-northeastwards with a speed of 17 kmph in the past six hours and further weakened into a cyclonic storm.

"It is very likely to move east-northeastwards across Bangladesh. It is likely to weaken into a deep depression over coastal Bangladesh and neighbourhood during the next six hours and into a depression during the subsequent six hours," the IMD stated in its All India Weather Warning Bulletin.
