The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued an alert for 6 states for heavy rainfall under the influence of a low-pressure area that is likely to develop in the Bay of Bengal. The IMD has also tweeted regarding it and has said that a “low-Pressure Area is likely to develop over the east-central Bay of Bengal during next 48 hours’ and that ‘Odisha, north Coastal AP, Telangana Vidarbha, Gangetic West Bengal, Gujarat will receive heavy to very heavy rainfall from June 9 to 11.”
The India Meteorological Department on Friday forecast that another low-pressure system could form in the Bay of Bengal by June 10, over three weeks after Cyclone ‘Amphan’ wreaked havoc in West Bengal. The development comes on the heels of Cyclone ‘Amphan’ and ‘Nisarga’ which made landfalls on the eastern and western coasts on May 20 and June 3.
