MeT Predicted- Super Cyclone Yaas likely to hit Sunderbans between May 23 & 25

As the Regional Meteorological Department has predicted super cyclone Yaas likely to hit Sunderbans between May 23 & 25 and then head towards Bangladesh.

Warning released by MeT states that the super cyclone Yaas may cause similar havoc as what Amphan did last year. However, the MeT department is not sure about the wind direction. In the East-central Bay and its nearby area, a low depression has been formed whose strength is increasing every day. This might take the shape of a super cyclone before hitting the Sunderbans by the end of this week.
