Cyclone Fani expected to escalate into an extremely severe storm

As on Monday morning, the cyclone was located just over 800km in the southeast from Chennai. A high alert has been issued in the coastal areas of Odisha, Andhra Pradesh, and Tamil Nadu

Cyclone Fani is expected to escalate into an extremely severe storm and would move towards the north-west in India’s eastern coast until May 1. Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, and Odisha have been warned to brace for extreme weather conditions including strong winds, heavy rainfall, and rough seas.

The cyclone is situated over the Bay of Bengal in the south-east, just over 800km from the coast of Chennai. IMD said that the cyclone could generate wind speeds up to 50-60 km per hour in the coastal regions.

An IMD official said, “The cyclone is likely to attain its strongest force on May 1 and 2 when, at its center, wind speeds could be as high as 185 km per hour. But since the nearest Indian coast, in northern Andhra Pradesh or southern Odisha, is likely to be at least 300 km away, the coastal areas are likely to experience wind speeds of about 60 km per hour.”

The IMD had also said, “The cyclone threat for Tamil Nadu and Puducherry has subsided with the cyclone Fani keeping away from anywhere near the shores.”

The Cyclone is currently moving in the north-west direction for the next two days before it turns towards the north-east. The cyclone would intensify by May 1 and 2 with generating wind speeds of about 185 km per hour in the center.

Light to moderate rainfall is expected in parts of Kerala, the northern coast of Tamil Nadu, south coast of Andhra Pradesh over the next two days. Heavy rainfall expected in isolated pockets over Kerala. Coastal Odisha would also experience rainfall which would intensify by May 3.
