Advisory for the Depression in the East Central Bay of Bengal

A low-pressure area located in East Central Bay of Bengal has intensified into a depression and lay centered near latitude 16.1N longitude 90.2E today around 11.30a.m. This system is very likely to intensify into a cyclonic storm by 24th and further into a severe cyclonic storm during subsequent 24 hours, the Meteorology Department said

The system is very likely to move northnorthwestwards and reach near west Bengal coasts around 26th May.

As such, sudden roughness of the sea associated with strong winds (50-60 kmph, up to 70-80kmph gusty wind at times) during thundershowers are expected over the North
Andaman sea and adjoining east central Bay of Bengal and deep sea area of southwest Bay of Bengal during next few days.

Under the influence of the system, possibility for heavy showers or thundershowers and sudden roughness, associated with sudden increase of wind speed up to 50-60 kmph is high in deep and shallow see areas around the island during next few days.

There is a possibility that near shore sea areas off the coast extending from Puttalam to Galle via Colombo may experience surges due to the effect of swell waves, having (2.5-3.0) m height.

Naval and fishing communities are advised not to venture into the East Central Bay of Bengal and adjoining area (08N-20N, 83E-100E), and sea areas around the island until further notice.
