The India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Sunday issued a cyclone alert for West Bengal and Bangladesh coasts after Cyclone Amphan intensified over the Bay of Bengal.

A deep depression in the ocean had intensified into the cyclonic storm last night and is likely to make landfall on the West Bengal coast on May 20. Its trajectory, however, is still being studied by the scientists.

Since last night, it has intensified slightly and is lying centred about 990 km south of Odisha’s Paradip, 1140 km of south-southwest of West Bengal’s Digha and 1260 km south-southwest of Bangladesh’s Khepupara.
