Hyundai Motor India on Thursday announced that it has formed a special task force to extend every possible help and support to customers who may have been affected by the recent Cyclone Amphan that hit the eastern parts of India.

Cyclone Amphan wrecked havoc in West Bengal and many parts of Odisha last week with wind speeds well over 100 kmph and incessant heavy rainfall breaking bridges, uprooting trees and electricity poles, and submerging vehicles in many places. Such was the extent of devastation that the Army had to be called in to help out in West Bengal.
