The IMD has expressed apprehension that ‘Bulbul’ will become fierce on Friday and said that the coastal areas of West Bengal will see heavy rainfall from November 9 to 11.

As a precaution, the Odisha government has asked the administration in all districts to keep a very close watch on changes in weather. Also, 15 out of 30 districts have been advised to be ready to deal with waterlogging and flood-like conditions.

Apart from this, NDRF teams have been deployed for rescue work in Odisha and West Bengal.

The sudden change in weather has given rise to fear and apprehension among people in Odisha’s capital Bhubaneshwar and in coastal areas of the state. People have begun stocking up on items of daily use. According to IMD, the centre of the cyclone is 680 kms away from Paradip in Odisha.
