There is an expectation of a cyclone in the neighbouring state of Jharkhand. The weather department has forecasted that it’s going to hit the east-west axis, which extends from Jharkhand to southern Odisha.
There will be incessant rains for at least a few days all over West Bengal due to the monsoon axis being moving away from Uttar Pradesh, over to Jharkhand and Gangetic West Bengal. The whole northeast will remain wet for at least 4-5 days, the weather department has predicted.
Assam, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh have all been put on alert. Residents have been requested not to leave their homes during the heavy showers. However, the condition is not believed to be extremely bad in the next 24 hours. Thus, fishermen will be allowed to venture into the sea,
