On Saturday, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) issued a dire warning about the devastating effects of Cyclone Remal. It is anticipated that the storm would reach Bangladesh and the northeastern area.

On May 26, the storm is expected to make landfall in West Bengal, wreaking havoc on the coastal regions of both Bangladesh and West Bengal with its incredibly heavy rains and powerful winds.

The Indian Meteorological Department predicts that cyclone Remal will strengthen into a severe cyclonic storm in the coming hours, before making landfall between Bangladesh and the beaches of neighbouring West Bengal around midnight on May 26.

Northeastern areas such as Tripura, Assam, Nagaland, and Manipur, along with coastal West Bengal, may see rain and severe gusts, according to the IMD. Unfavourable weather conditions were warned of by the Tripura regional meteorological centre starting on May 26.

According to the weather service, “It is very likely to continue to move nearly northwards and intensify into a severe cyclonic storm by May 26 morning over Northwest and adjoining Northeast Bay of Bengal and cross Bangladesh and adjoining West Bengal coasts between Sagar Island and Khepupara by May 26 midnight as a Severe Cyclonic Storm with a wind speed of 110-120 gusting to 135 kmph” .
