Cyclone Yass likely to hit Odisha, West Bengal around May 25-27

A cyclone named 'Yass', rumoured to be more powerful than last year’s Amphan, is building up in the Bay of Bengal, days after Cyclone Tauktae left a trail of destruction.

On Wednesday, an official from the Ministry of Earth Sciences told the media that the cyclone is likely to form over the Bay of Bengal and is expected to hit the eastern coast around May 27.

The official also said that the cyclone might not be as severe as Cyclone Tauktae, which aggravated into an extremely destructive cyclonic storm.

M Rajeevan, Secretary, Ministry of Earth Sciences, addressing the media, said that the circulation of a cyclone is predicted to make over the Bay of Bengal on May 23. He said that it would most likely intensify into a cyclone and hit the West Bengal and Odisha coast.

The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) cautioned that a low-pressure area is highly likely to make over the North Andaman Sea and adjoining east-central Bay of Bengal around May 22. It is most likely to aggravate into a cyclonic storm during the next 72 hours.

IMD added that Southwest monsoon would probably advance into the South Andaman Sea and adjoining the southeast Bay of Bengal around May 21. A circulation of cyclone lies over Southeast Bay of Bengal and neighbourhoods between 3.1 km and 5.8 km above sea level.

The seriousness of Cyclone Yass has overwhelmed the web as individuals have begun panicking after the damage Cyclone Tauktae has left along the western coast. Numerous netizens have even started sharing memes about the two back-to-back cyclones hitting the country.

Meanwhile, the Regional Meteorological Centre in Kolkata said that they had been issued with no such warning. A release that the department has issued said that they have only given a statement about a low-pressure trough that is likely to form over the east-central Bay of Bengal and its adjoining area around May 23, which they are closely monitoring the development of that system.

The pre-monsoon months, April-May, usually witness the formation of cyclones on the eastern and, therefore, the western coast also. May 2020 had witnessed two cyclones, which hit the eastern and western coast, respectively, super cyclonic storm Amphan and severe cyclonic storm Nisarga.
