Only a few days ago, the International Meteorological Department predicted a cyclone. In the end, their prediction came true.
India’s meteorological department has warned that the depression created in the East-Central Bay of Bengal has turned into a cyclone by storing energy. The current wind speed of the cyclone is 85 km per hour.
The cyclone could hit the Andhra Pradesh coast of India in a stronger form next Monday morning.
However, if the direction is changed, there is a possibility of hitting Bangladesh’s coastal areas. That will accompany by heavy rainfall.
This depression from the Andaman Sea is now located in the East-Central Bay of Bengal. The Indian Meteorological Office said it would move north-northwest by saving energy.
Although the storm did not directly affect West Bengal, heavy rains expect in Orissa, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka and Maharashtra on Sunday and Monday, they said in a statement.
Heavy rains are forecast in Andaman and Nicobar. During these two days, part of the Bay of Bengal will be rough from the Andaman Sea. That is why fishers from Andhra Pradesh, Orissa and Andaman coasts have banned from fishing in the sea during this period.
However, the Bangladesh Meteorological Office has not yet issued any warning or message about cyclone ‘Gati’.
