    22. Aleena Paul

      She clearly states that she's privileged. Yes, she is in a better situation than most. But that doesn't mean she can't be scared.

    29. motivated life

      Omg it's so horrible

    30. Sudharshan S

      Yeah It will be severe in the ground but the wind blowing speed will be reduced in the ground due to obstacles like towers houses and compounds. But at such a tall building, even without any cyclone wind flow will be higher bcoz of height. That's the reason probably

    31. Rabindra Thapa

      Goli maro salo ko

    32. Vineet Saha

    36. Somesh Parida

      The cyclone made landfall with a speed of 155 km per hour .. in comparison fani hit with 180 plus and phailin hit with a speed of 215 km per hour .. even in a age of 4g did u see any one making a scene out of that in their posh apartment with negligible loss. Plain and simple you good for nothing journo is trying to just sell the fake emotions to gather views .. such a pathetic click bait journalism .. shame on. You both quint and the journo who posted this shit

    63. vaibhav uchil

      Cyclone Amphan was still slower(@185kmph) than Super cyclone of Orissa (@260kmph).

    64. Deep Talks

      At <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="120">2:00</a> it was like a haunted movie sean

    65. Fames Contai

    71. Sara Ahmad

      If this region has had devastating cyclones then why aren’t the building built accordingly? Makes no sense for people to live in these nice apartments and just end up getting hurt

    72. singh vijaya

      She is brave..its not about poor or rich if our life is in danger it is just for life...the sound of cyclone was so scary..but she is able to shoot n convey her masg through... atleast better than me

    73. Roseleena Gomes

      Seriously people those who are staying on road or in slum area are horrible days for them.

    74. Roseleena Gomes

      Because of these kind of natural disasters govt. should restrictions for making above 3 floors and also one married couple only have one property this is my thoughts.

    75. Kumar Vanitha
