As the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) issued a warning against severe Cyclone Remal which is expected to hit West Bengal on May 26, NDRF Inspector Zaheer Abbas said our team is fully prepared to handle every kind of disaster.
Speaking to ANI, NDRF Inspector Zaheer Abbas said, “We are fully prepared for the cyclone. If the cyclone hits here, our soldiers are ready to deal with every kind of disaster… Our team is well-equipped. Our team is ready for tree falling or flood rescue etc… We are ready to deal with every situation…”
A low-pressure area that was first observed on May 22 in the Bay of Bengal has intensified into a more depressive system, now located in the central Bay of Bengal. IMD predicts that this system will further intensify into a cyclone and move towards northeastern India by the morning of May 25.
The primary regions affected are West Bengal, Coastal Bangladesh, Tripura and some other parts of north-eastern states. Residents in these areas, as well as in the neighbouring state of Tripura, are urged to brace for adverse weather conditions starting from May 26.
Meanwhile, IMD Agartala Director Partha Roy told ANI, “The low-pressure area that was observed on 22 May in the Bay of Bengal has now intensified and is more depressive. It will further intensify which we have predicted and will turn into a cyclone and will move towards northeastern India on the 25th Morning. The landfall area of the cyclone is the West Bengal and coastal region of Bangladesh and the landfall time is on May 26 at midnight.”
On the observation of the cyclone, Roy stated, “The movement of the cyclone is being observed by us. The warning can be extended. As of now, the warning is till the 28th it may increase. The impact of these worse conditions will severely impact the low land areas including the crops and people are advised to remain at home and avoid going outside during these warning hours.”
IMD continues to monitor the cyclone’s progression and will provide updates as necessary. The current warning is in effect until May 28, but it may be extended if the situation requires.
The IMD’s alert serves as a critical reminder of the power and unpredictability of natural weather events. Preparedness and adherence to safety advisories are essential to minimize the impact of this impending cyclone on communities in northeastern India and coastal Bangladesh
