Check out the cloud build-up of Extremely Severe Cyclone Fani in less than a minute

May 1, 2019 3:03 PM |

Extremely Severe Cyclonic Storm Fani has been brewing in Bay Bengal for quite long now. The journey started on April 25, when a low pressure had developed in Southeast Bay of Bengal and adjoining Equatorial Indian Ocean. It is almost a week long travel for Fani to become one of the most  powerful cyclone seen during the month of April in any Indian seas.

At present, Extremely Severe Cyclonic Storm Fani over West-Central and adjoining Southwest Bay of Bengal is moving towards the Indian coast. Fani is centered near Latitude 14.1°N and Longitude 83.9°E, about 640 Km south-southwest of Puri, Odisha and 395 km south-southeast of Vishakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh.

Cyclonic storm Fani would continue to move in northwest direction next 12 hours. Thereafter, re-curving north-northeastward and moving along the coast. It is likely to make landfall at Odisha Coast between Gopalpur and Chandbali by the noon hours of May 3 as an Extremely Severe Cyclonic Storm.

With this, clouding has already increased over coastal areas of Andhra Pradesh and Odisha. Rains are also likely to commence soon. Rains would intensify during the next 24 hours and heavy to very heavy rains likely along the Coastal Andhra Pradesh for the next two days, while extremely heavy showers are likely over Odisha from May 3-4.
