According to sources of Met office a low pressure is likely to form over East Central Bay of Bengal that will make a landfall on May 24.

“Through Sunderbans the cyclone is likely to enter bringing high to very high rainfall in parts of South Bengal. Through West Bengal the cyclone Yash is likely to go towards Bangladesh. However, the actual movement of the cyclone can be monitored only before 48 hours of the development,” mentioned sources of the Met office.

Notably, last year amidst lockdown super cyclone Amphan had brought in very severe rainfall to West Bengal including Kolkata and has damaged several things in the Sunderban area as even Amphan marked its entry through Sunderbans and after being weak entered Bangladesh.
