Deadly Cyclone Roanu will bring a major flood risk to northeastern India and Bangladesh as it slams onshore during the first half of the weekend.
The first tropical cyclone of the season in the Bay of Bengal will make landfall in Bangladesh, near or just north of Chittagong, on Saturday.
The cyclone will continue to graze India’s northern Odisha and West Bengal coasts into Friday night. Rain will generally total 50-100 mm (2-4 inches) with locally higher amounts, triggering some incidents of flooding.
As the cyclonic storm traverses the Bay of Bengal from the Indian coast to Bangladesh, it is expected to gain strength and become a Severe Cyclonic Storm with maximum sustained winds of 90-115 km/h (55-70 mph).
The south-central coast of Bangladesh is at risk for flooding storm surge and wind gusts of 95-125 km/h (60-80 mph) as Roanu moves onshore. Power outages, tree damage and structural damage may result.
“The major threat from Roanu will continue to be flooding,” AccuWeather Meteorologist Rob Richards said.
This threat will expand well beyond the point of landfall, encompassing southern Bangladesh, northeastern India and western and northern Myanmar.
In northeastern India, this includes Tripura, Mizoram, Manipur, Nagaland and eastern parts of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.
