Rain in Kolkata

Cyclonic Storm Bulbul underwent several layers of intensification and finally became very severe cyclonic storm. However, as bulbul came closer to the coast, it weakened into a Severe cyclone.

Moreover, Bulbul made landfall over the Indo-Bangladesh coast, giving heavy rainfall with gale force winds over many parts of West Bengal and Bangladesh. In fact, a 28-year-old man even lost his life due to the storm.

The state capital Kolkata also received heavy rains in the last 24 hours. In a span of 24 hours, from 8.30 am on Saturday, Dum Dum Airport recorded 103 mm of rains while Alipore observatory saw 91.7 mm of rain.

The average rainfall for the Alipore observatory in Kolkata for the month of November stands at 35.5 mm and so far Kolkata has already witnessed 101.7 mm rains.

In fact, the city has already surpassed the decade-old monthly record of November which stands at 65 mm, witnessed in the year 2016.

Now as of today, the storm has weakened into a cyclone and is likely to weaken further into a depression by today evening and move towards Northeast India. Thus, now it is Northeast India's turn to see some rains. Parts of Mizoram, Tripura, and Assam are expected to see rains.
