This week, a low pressure area is expected to form over the southeast Bay of Bengal, giving rise to Moka, the first cyclonic storm of the year. A cyclonic circulation is anticipated to begin around May 6 and might be active until May 11, according to IMD. A cyclone has not yet been officially verified to have formed, though.
The Meteorological Department's office announced on Wednesday that it had found the first indications of a cyclone in the southeast Bay of Bengal. Fishermen and boatmen have been told not to enter this region as a result. According to the IMD director, winds of 40 to 50 kilometres per hour are anticipated to blow in the area in the event of a cyclone. Mahapatra claimed that Yemen had proposed the name Mocha for the cyclone.
