The low pressure created in the Bay of Bengal has turned into a clear low pressure. As a result, it will gradually get stronger and may develop into Cyclone ‘Mokha’ on Wednesday, said the Meteorological Department.
In the latest situation on Monday midnight, the Bangladesh Meteorological Department said, the low pressure located in the southeast Bay of Bengal and the adjacent South Andaman Sea area has condensed and turned into a clear low pressure in the same area last midnight. It can be more concentrated.
Meanwhile, the Indian Meteorological Department said that it may turn into a low pressure by Tuesday. It is likely to develop into a cyclonic storm over Southeast Bay of Bengal and east-central Bay of Bengal and Andaman Sea by tomorrow Wednesday. It may move north and northwest till Thursday and reach east-central Bay of Bengal. The cyclone can then turn slowly. It is likely to move north and northeast towards the Bangladesh-Myanmar coast.
On the other hand, Mustafa Kamal Palash, a Ph.D. researcher on meteorology and climate at the University of Saskatchewan in Canada, has expressed the fear that the impact of Mokha will be very strong in Bangladesh. Accordingly, Cyclone Mokha may make landfall over Chittagong, Cox’s Bazar and Maungdoo District of Rakhine State of Myanmar between 180 and 200 kilometers per hour from next Sunday (May 14) at 6 a.m. to May 15 at 6 a.m.
