Another Depression over Bay of Bengal intensifies

Bhubaneswar, Nov 06: Another cyclonic storm is likely to hit the coastal Odisha and Andhra Pradesh a month after Cyclone Hudhud battered the states, as a depression over central Bay of Bengal is moving towards north-west direction.

According to the MeT department, the depression has been intensified into a deep depression for which the climate will be cloudy partially or dry in the coastal part of Odisha.

However, the depression will not be severe and people need not panic about it. The wind speed would be 30-40 kmph gusting to 50 kmph off Odisha Coasts after it makes landfall. The weather office here cautioned the fishermen against venturing into the sea and those out at sea off the Odisha coast to return.

According to MeT,  the deep depression lay centred at about 700 km south-southeast of Paradip over central Bay of Bengal near latitude 14.00 N and longitude 87.00 E at 0830 hours today. It would move northwestwards and intensify further into a cyclonic storm during the next 24 hours. It would then move west-northwestwards towards Andhra Pradesh coast. However, it would weaken gradually into a depression while reaching near the coast on November 8 night.
