The possible cyclonic storm over the Bay of Bengal named "Yaas" is likely to make landfall in between north Odisha and Bangladesh coast on 26 May.
Odisha Special Relief Commissioner (SRC) Pradeep Kumar Jena revealed the information on Friday, reports Odissa News.
Chattogram University Geography and Environmental Studies Prof Dr Biswajit Nath resonated with the prediction and added by 26th, the super cyclone will advance with a gusty wind speed of approximately 120-140 km/hr.
"Coastal flooding will occur as the Cyclone 'YAAS' will coincide with Super Flower moon Astronomical Tide on 26 May 2021, which is a day of the event. Therefore, the average storm surge height will be high," his Facebook handle wrote.
The maximum wave height has been predicted to be 6-7 meter and over depending on coastal configurations.
The entire Sundarban (India and Bangladesh) towards the Kuakata coast in Bangladesh will be facing severe waves and coastal inundation on 26-27 May.
Yaas is expected to make the first landfall at the Sagar Island in the Indian portion of Sunderban.
