Rain in different places, some relief has returned but the panic of the cyclone is not abating


The heat wave continues throughout the month of May. Sultry weather has been added to it for more than a week now. Due to the increase in humidity in the air, unbearable heat is being felt all over the country. Meanwhile, the deep depression in the East-Central Bay of Bengal and adjoining areas shifted to the west-northwest on Monday and turned into a cyclone.

As a result, it has started raining in different parts of the country since afternoon. The cyclone is moving in the Bay of Bengal, 600 km off the coast of Bangladesh, moving at a speed of 4 km per hour to the north-northwest, towards the coast of Odisha and West Bengal in India.

Bangladesh's meteorologists believe that the cyclone could pass through the north coast of Odisha, West Bengal coast and Khulna area in the early hours of Wednesday, moving north-northwest from the current position of the East Central Bay.

At that time the maximum wind speed may be 125 kilometers per hour. Meteorologists believe that the risk of damage to Bangladesh will be less if the direction is the same as it is now. If the cyclone does not change its direction, Bangladesh is not likely to be affected, said the Minister of State for Disaster Management and Relief. Enamur Rahman. However, meteorologists say cyclones change direction from time to time.

If it changes direction, it can also come towards the coast of Bangladesh. Mostafa Kamal, a Bangladeshi PhD researcher in meteorology and climate at Saskatchewan University in Canada, said that in 2005, Cyclone Nargis killed about 150,000 people off the coast of Myanmar. Nargis was heading towards the Odisha coast of India 24 hours after her birth.

It then suddenly changed direction and hit the coast of Myanmar. As a result, the fear of Yas hitting the coast of Bangladesh is still not going away. From past experience, senior residents of the coast say that the temperature is unbearable a week before the cyclone that has formed. This time too he is feeling the same intense heat.

On the other hand, cyclone Yas is expected to hit on Wednesday, the full moon day. During the full moon, tidal surges of two to three feet in height occur naturally in the coastal areas. If the cyclone hits that day, the tidal wave may be higher than normal.

Forkan Hawlader, a fisherman from Kuakata's Lemburchar, said, "Cyclone Aile will take everything away in the full moon." The Bangladesh Meteorological Department said Yas would not hit Bangladesh unless it changed its current course. However, moderate rainfall is expected in the Sundarbans. According to the Indian Meteorological Department, the cyclone is expected to hit Sagardwip and Odisha in West Bengal by Wednesday evening.

As a result, heavy to very heavy rain is expected from Tuesday. According to the Meteorological Department, the maximum maximum speed of the wind within the center of the storm is now 62 km per hour. This speed is increasing up to 88 kmph in the form of gusts or gusty winds. The sea near the center of the cyclone is turbulent.

The country's four seaports have been asked to display remote warning signal No. 2 instead of remote warning signal No. 1. The cyclone will affect the coastal districts from midnight on Tuesday, said Meteorologist Arif Hossain of the Meteorological Department. When the cyclone finally reaches this country, Khulna, Satkhira, Bagerhat and Barguna districts will be inundated.

Even if it doesn't, the four districts will be hit by heavy rains and strong winds. The meteorologist Hafizur Rahman of the Meteorological Department said in a special warning message that the cyclone was located 675 km south-southwest of 685 km from Chittagong port on Monday afternoon.

695 km from Cox's Bazar to 605 km south-southwest. But Mongla and Payra are still at the same distance. It is located 650 km south of Mongla port and 605 km south of Payra port.

The government is taking precautionary measures besides preparing shelters in the coastal areas to reduce the damage caused by the cyclone. Coastal panic: Extensive preparations have been made in the coastal areas of the country to deal with the cyclone. However, there has been panic in various risky areas.
