Chennai: Just a day after Cyclone Nivar made landfall on the coasts of Tamil Nadu and Puducherry, another storm may be developing in the Bay of Bengal. The storm, if it develops, may move towards Tamil Nadu and Puducherry and hit the coast on December 2.
The Tamil Nadu Disaster Management Authority Friday said a low-pressure area was expected to develop over southeast Bay of Bengal and intensify further.
“A low-pressure area is very likely to form over Southeast Bay of Bengal. It would concentrate into a depression during next 24 hours and is very likely to intensify further and move westwards and reach Tamil Nadu-Puducherry coasts on December 2,” the authority said.
The news came a day after at least three people were killed in Tamil Nadu as Very Severe Cyclonic Storm Nivar made landfall around midnight of Wednesday.
The storm uprooted more than 1,000 trees in the state and left several low-lying areas marooned.
Nivar, which made landfall near Puducherry, gradually weakened as it crossed the land.
Heavy rainfall was witnessed in Tamil Nadu as well as Puducherry.
