Low pressure intensifies to depression over bay

The well-marked low pressure area over the east central Bay of Bengal was concentrated on a depression and was located about 560 km north-northwest of Port Blair (Andaman Islands), 590 km east-southeast of Paradip (Odisha) and 670 km southeast of Digha (West Bengal) on Sunday.

It is likely that it will move in a north-northwest direction and intensify into a cyclone storm by Monday. It would continue to move in a north-northwest direction through the morning of May 26, reinforcing the northwest Bay of Bengal near West Bengal and the north coast of Odisha, according to a statement from the Cyclone Warning Center (CWC), Visakhapatnam.

It is likely that it crossed the coasts of northern Odisha and West Bengal between Paradip and Sagar as a very severe cyclone storm on the evening of May 26th.

The CWC has advised the fishermen of the coast of Andhra Pradesh not to venture into the sea until May 27th, as strong winds with a speed of 40 to 50 km / h and gusts of up to 60 km / h on and off the coast are likely.
