Will Cyclone ‘Asani’ cause great decimation?

To control the jeopardy of the cyclone ‘Asani’, an alert has been issued in Odisha, Andhra Pradesh, and  West Bengal.’ The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) issued an alert to fishermen and suggested they not go near coastal areas till the next information or order against the cyclone is issued. On Sunday ‘Asani’ turned into a dangerous cyclone and the tornado also blew in a very fast mode. IMD also said that ‘Asani’ turned into a dangerous cyclone and its speed will be a minimum of 95-105 kilometres per hour. However, there is relaxation because there is less chance of landfall due to its speed.

Due to cyclone Asani, states like Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, and West Bengal are put on high alert and the people of these states have been directed to take care of themselves. Mamata Banerjee, Chief Minister of West Bengal has cancelled all her meetings till 10 May 20022.

Odisha’s Special Relief Commissioner (SRC) PK Jena said that the state government is completely ready and has made its full arrangements for the protection of people and will follow all the rules and regulations which are issued by IMD.

Weather bureau and cyclone management department Anand Kumar Das said that “We expect that this cyclone will get higher on Monday morning and will reach its maximum level and from today it will reach the area near Visakhapatnam and the area of 130 km. and after reaching Visakhapatnam area then it will turn to Odisha coastal area and from 11 May 2022 slowly it will run down and hopefully not reach the coastal area of Odisha.”
