Chennai: A low pressure area has formed in the Bay of Bengal; This is going to be a storm. For that, the name ‘Miqjam’ has been chosen.

Since the onset of Northeast Monsoon, three storms have formed in Tamil Nadu. Cyclone Tej first made landfall in Oman, followed by Cyclones Hamoon and Mithili in Bangladesh. As far as Tamil Nadu is concerned, there have been no cyclones so far this season. All the districts have received widespread rains and water bodies are full.

In this case, a press release issued by the Chennai Meteorological Department regarding the formation of a new low pressure area:

A low pressure area has formed over southern Andaman and adjoining areas. It will move in a west-northwest direction and strengthen as a depression over southeast Bay of Bengal on 29th.

Then, it will move northwestward in 48 hours and intensify into a storm over Southeast Bay of Bengal. Due to this, cyclonic winds will blow at a speed of 55 km per hour in the south and south-east parts of Andaman, north sea and south-east and south-west parts of the Bay of Bengal till the 1st.

Therefore, fishermen should not go to the above areas till the 1st. As of yesterday morning, the maximum rainfall in the state was 10 cm in Kanchipuram; More than 80 places have recorded rainfall ranging from 1 to 10 cm.

It says so.

Target for Tamil Nadu?

The India Meteorological Department is monitoring the speed and direction of the low pressure area moving over the sea through ‘radar’ in the cities of Chennai, Visakhapatnam, Kolkata, Puducherry and Bhubaneswar.

The low pressure area formed over the Bay of Bengal is likely to strengthen into a storm after Dec 1. The storm has been given the name ‘Mikjam’ by Myanmar.

As the storm moves north-west, cyclonic winds with heavy rains are likely over the coastal areas from Nagapattinam to Bhubaneswar in Odisha.

Similarly, in the stretch of sea from Naga to Bhubaneswar, there is a chance of landfall at one point. Meteorological Center officials have said that the movement of the storm and landfall will be known only on December 2.

Meanwhile, most districts across the state will receive moderate rain till December 3 due to variation in speed of easterly winds.
