Cyclone Remal Moving Towards Northeast. Heavy Rainfall Alert Issued For Tripura

Storm is about to hit the Bay of Bengal. Cyclone Remal (Cyclone Remal Latest News) may hit the coasts of West Bengal and Bangladesh this Sunday. 

This important information has been given by the Meteorological Department. This is the first storm in the Bay of Bengal before the arrival of monsoon. 

This storm has been named Remal. Monica Sharma, scientist of the India Meteorological Department, said, "It will concentrate in a pressure area over the central Bay of Bengal by Friday morning. It will turn into a cyclonic storm on Saturday morning and will intensify further. After this, by Sunday evening it will reach Bangladesh and adjacent West Bengal coast as a severe cyclonic storm"

According to IMD, due to the cyclone on Sunday, wind can blow at a speed of 102 kilometers per hour. The weather office has warned of very heavy rainfall in the coastal districts of West Bengal, North Odisha, Mizoram, Tripura and South Manipur on May 26-27. 

Fishermen who went fishing in the sea have been advised to return to the coast and not to go to the Bay of Bengal till May 27. 

Scientists say that due to warmer sea surface temperatures, cyclonic storms are increasing their speed faster and retaining their strength for longer periods of time, resulting in the oceans absorbing most of the additional heat from greenhouse gas emissions.

According to the Meteorological Department, the sea surface temperature has been recorded as the highest in the last 30 years.

According to IMD senior scientist DS Pai, warm sea surface temperature means more moisture, which is conducive to the intensification of cyclones. 

Former Secretary of the Union Ministry of Earth Sciences Madhavan Rajeevan said that for a low pressure system to turn into a cyclone, the sea surface temperature must be 27 degrees Celsius and above. 

He said that the surface temperature in the Bay of Bengal is currently 30 degrees Celsius.


The Meteorological Department has issued a forecast of heavy to very heavy rains in Tripura on May 26 and 27 across the state due to low pressure over the Bay of Bengal.

The Meteorological Department also said that a low pressure has formed in the Bay of Bengal. 

The low pressure is slowly moving northeast. It will become a cyclone on May 25 morning.

Therefore, heavy to very heavy rainfall forecast has been issued in Sepahijala , Gomati , South Tripura, Dhalai district, Khowai district on May 26. 

Along with this, a warning has also been issued for gusts with lightning. It is known that gusty winds can move at a speed of about 40 to 50 km per hour.
