Bhubaneswar : After the devastating cyclone Amphan passed over Bengal and Odisha, Bhubaneswar saw dramatic change in its sky that turned purple and pink in colour.
People of Bhubaneswar flooded the social media application Twitter with hundreds of photos.
The beautiful sky was surely a pleasant sight for many who had endured a scary few hours as Cyclone Amphan uprooted trees, broke windows, and left behind a trail of destruction as it moved to Bengal to hammer the state.

More than 5 lakh people were affected by the cyclone Amphan. 72 people have been reported dead in the natural disaster, which Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee estimated to be Rs 1 lakh crore loss to the state.
Cyclone Amphan is only the second "super cyclone" to form over the Bay of Bengal since records began, and the first since 1999. Odisha was hit by a super cyclone that left nearly 10,000 dead in 1999.
