Bhubaneswar: The Well Marked Low-Pressure Area over north Andaman Sea has concentrated into a Depression and is very likely to move towards Odisha-West Bengal coast in a few days in form of a Cyclonic Storm, said the latest bulletin by the Regional Meteorological Department here on Tuesday.
The bulletin also said that the depression is about 150 km west-northwest of Maya Bandar (Andaman Islands), about 950 km south-southeast of Paradip (Odisha), 1020 km south-southeast of Sagar islands (West Bengal) and 1000 km south-southwest of Khepupara (Bangla Desh).
The predictions suggest that the Depression might intensify into a Deep Depression in the next 12 hours and into a Cyclonic Storm during the subsequent 24 hours. It is very likely to move towards Odisha – West Bengal coasts.
