Cyclone Asani won’t impact Odisha

Thursday, 12 May 2022 | PNS | BHUBANESWAR

Cyclone Asani, which was lying off the Andhra

Pradesh coast on Wednesday, is unlikely to have much impact on

Odisha, said Special Relief Commissioner Pradeep Jena.

On the probable movement of the cyclone, he said it was likely to

make landfall between Kakinada and Narsapur of Andhra Pradesh on

Wednesday night. Then it is likely to re-curve and weaken into

depression to move back to sea on Thursday morning.

Earlier in the day, India Meteorological Department (IMD) DG

Mrutyunjay Mohapatra had also predicted that the cyclone over west-

central Bay of Bengal may make landfall between Kakinada and Narsapur

of AP in the evening. 

“We are not expecting any structural damages in Odisha under the impact

of the cyclonic storm because the wind speed in the State will be 40 to 50

kmph,” Mohapatra said.

“Squally wind speed reaching 40-50 kmph gusting to 60 kmph is likely to

continue along and off the Odisha coast from May 11 to 12,” he added.
