Cyclone Michaung to make landfall between Machilipatnam and Nellore on Dec 5
Bhubaneswar: The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a high alert as Cyclonic Storm Michaung gains strength over the Bay of Bengal. Predicted to make landfall between Nellore and Machilipatnam on December 5, the storm is anticipated to bring fierce winds with speeds reaching up to 100 kmph.
Southern Odisha and the coastal regions are bracing for heavy rainfall and potential disruptions.
Named by Myanmar, Michaung transformed from a deep depression into a cyclonic storm on Sunday, prompting intensified monitoring by weather authorities. The IMD’s trajectory projections indicate a northward movement, tracking parallel to the south Andhra Pradesh coast before making landfall. As coastal communities prepare for the impending storm, authorities are implementing precautionary measures to ensure public safety.
