Cyclone Yaas: Eden Gardens to provide shelter to 'Kolkata Maidan Clubs' ground staff

The makeshift arrangement will also have provision for food.

The space under the Eden Gardens galleries will be used as a makeshift shelter arrangement for the ground staff of Kolkata Maidan clubs when the approaching cyclone Yaas strikes the city, the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) said on Monday.

 

Yaas, which is classified as a 'very severe cyclonic storm', is predicted to hit the city on Wednesday evening with wind speeds of over 150kph.

 

The makeshift arrangement will also have provision for food.

 

"There are many sports clubs and institutions which have their tents in the Maidan which could be vulnerable and prone to high risk due to the cyclonic activity," CAB president Avishek Dalmiya said in a statement.
