Here’s how to live track cyclonic storm Nisarga
Just days after super cyclonic storm Amphan ravaged parts of West Bengal, Odisha and coastal Bangladesh, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Monday warned of another cyclonic storm, named Nisarga, that may hit coastal Maharashtra and Gujarat on June 3.
The IMD said that a low-pressure area is likely to intensify into a cyclonic storm and cross North Maharashtra and South Gujarat coast on June 3.
“The Low-pressure area intensified into a depression today morning. To intensify into a Cyclonic Storm and cross North Maharastra and South Gujarat coast during 3rd June evening/night,” the IMD tweeted.
The weather department is set to share more details on the intensity and expected damage caused by cyclone Nisarga once it has clearer pictures. However, live tracking of the cyclonic formation is possible and can be done through the IMD website.
“The depression in the south west Arabian Sea is likely to concentrate into a deep depression in next 12 hours and in next 24 hours it is going to become a cyclone,” Anand Kumar Sharma, deputy director general, India Meteorological Department (IMD) said on Monday.
