The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued an important weather update, predicting the intensification of a deep depression over the Bay of Bengal into a cyclone, to be named “Hamoon.” The cyclone is expected to have significant implications for several states as it progresses.

Cyclone’s Path and Impact

As per the IMD’s latest bulletin, the deep depression, currently situated over the western part of the Bay of Bengal, is anticipated to evolve into a cyclone by Monday evening. Cyclone Hamoon is projected to make landfall on the Bangladeshi coast between Khepupara and Chittagong on Wednesday evening, October 25.

Current Position and Movement

At 11.30 am, the deep depression was centered approximately 320 km south-southeast of Paradip, Odisha, 470 km south-southwest of Digha, West Bengal, and 610 km south-southwest of Khepupara, Bangladesh. Over the previous six hours, it had been moving north-northeastward at a speed of 13 kmph.

Expected Weather Conditions

Until October 26, the northeastern states are likely to experience varying levels of precipitation, ranging from light to moderate, with occasional heavy rainfall (64.5 mm-115.5 mm). Thunderstorms and lightning are expected in Kerala and Tamil Nadu in Southern India, alongside scattered regions receiving light to moderate rainfall and isolated areas witnessing heavy rainfall.

The states of Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, and Tripura will witness light to moderate rainfall with isolated occurrences of heavy rainfall, accompanied by thunderstorms and lightning.

Tomorrow, Tripura may encounter isolated, very heavy rainfall. Along the coastal regions of north Odisha, there will be scattered heavy downpours with thunderstorms and lightning today, followed by similar conditions in Gangetic West Bengal tomorrow.

Precautionary Measures

It is essential for residents in these regions to stay informed about the changing weather conditions and take necessary precautions as advised by local authorities. These measures can help ensure safety and minimize any potential risks associated with the impending cyclone and its associated weather patterns.
