How prepared is Odisha State for Yaas Cyclone

Odisha has already prepared 800 shelters to house citizens from seacoast areas. In an addition to that, schools, government buildings, and colleges are which are not in use will also be used for the shelters if need be. Officials are also going to maintain the social distancing to avoid Covid surge so they are preparing as many shelters as possible.

As a rule-of-thumb, the monsoon makes its onset over Kerala roughly ten days after it makes its advent over the south Andaman Sea. However, due to the interference of cyclonic storms, this theory may not hold true, as was observed last year due to Nisarga and Amphan.

The Cyclone Yaas weather system is likely to hit the eastern or the Coromandel coast of the country on the evening of May 26, the India Meteorological Department said in its tropical cyclone outlook.

South TN will get spill over from west and so will some western districts. Heavy Rains – Kerala will also have heavy rains particularly in south Kerala for next 5-6 days from 25th may. Trivandrum, Kollam and Kanyakumari has chance of heavy rains on some days between 25-31st May.
