New Delhi: A cyclonic formation over north interior of Odisha is being formed at a height between 0.9 km and 7.6 km above mean sea level, according to reports by the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) on Monday.
According to the data published by the IMD, the cyclonic circulation is expected to move northwestwards in the next 3 days.
The cyclonic formation comes just days after cyclone Nisarga wreaked havoc in Maharashtra making landfall in Raigad district on June 3.
The cyclone Nisarga was the most severe cyclone that hit Maharashtra after 1961 with a wind speed of 100 to 110 kmph.
Also, earlier last month, super cyclone Amphan devastated parts of Odisha and West Bengal after it made landfall on the coastal regions of West Bengal and Bangladesh.
West Bengal witnessed extensive damages and suffered huge losses due to the super cyclone. Many lives were also lost due to Amphan in West Bengal.
