'Nada' may make landfall as cyclone this weekend
“The depression was centered at 6am on Friday about 1085km southwest of Chittagong port, 1040km southwest of Cox's Bazar port, 955km southwest of Mongla port and 955km southwest of Payra port,” said a met office bulletin on Friday, reports UNB. Maximum sustained wind speeds within 44km of the depression centre were clocked on Friday at 40kph, rising to 50kph in gusts/squalls. The bulletin said the sea will remain moderate near the depression centre and that the storm is likely to intensify further and move in a north-northwesterly direction. The squally conditions are already affecting the maritime ports and coastal areas of Bangladesh. Fishing boats and trawlers over the North Bay have been advised to come close to the coast and proceed with caution until further notice, and have also been advised not to venture into the deep sea. AccuWeather Meteorologist Courtney Spamer said that the depression may make landfall in Bangladesh later this weekend. "The main threat from this system will be heavy rain and flooding from coastal Odisha to Bangladesh, including the cities of Kolkata and Dhaka," she said. Rainfall in that area could total 100-200mm, threatening to cause widespread flooding problems. Rainfall on the higher end of that range will depend on how close the depression tracks to the coast, AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Jason Nicholls said. However, the depression is likely not become stronger than Cyclone Kyant, said AccuWeather information.
