Amphan Worry For State


Cyclone Amphan has turned out to be major headache for Odisha.


Though everybody including IMD has predicted that the cyclone will make a landfall between West Bengal and the Bangladesh sparing Odisha coast, the experts are worried over silence of the system.

 
The depression formed over the south-east Bay of Bengal rapidly turned into a cyclonic storm on Saturday evening.
 
It also took less time to further intensify into a severe cyclonic storm on Sunday morning.
 
But, what has caused concern is that its path is yet to be clearly ascertained, said former Bhubaneswar Metereological Centre Director Sarat Sahu.
 
Amphan now lay 990 km south of Paradip on Sunday morning. It is likely to intensify into a very severe cyclonic storm within the next 12 hours and move in a northerly direction, Mr.Sahu, Director of CEC, said.
 
While some models indicated that it would then recurve and move in a north-northeasterly direction before making landfall between West Bengal and Bangladesh on Wednesday, other models suggested that the system would move northwestward for some time and then take a north-northeastward path up to the Odisha coast and make landfall somewhere between Kendrapara and Bhadrak districts in the afternoon of May 20.
 
The system will trigger moderate to heavy rainfall might be experienced in the districts of Malkangiri, Koraput, Rayagada, Gajapati, Puri and Jagatsinghpur on Monday. 
 
This apart, very heavy rainfall at many places with extremely heavy rainfall at a few locations might occur in the districts of Puri, Jagatsinghpur, Ganjam, Kendrapara, Bhadrak, Balasore, Jajpur, Mayurbhanj and Keonjhar on Tuesday and Wednesday.
 
During the same period, moderate to heavy rainfall could be experienced in the districts of Nayagarh, Khurda, Cuttack, Dhenkanal and Angul, he said.
