It is said that there is a danger because the intensity of storms Mocha and Nargis are similar


The Directorate of Meteorology and Hydrology said that Cyclone Mocha, which is developing in the Bay of Bengal, is expected to make landfall on the morning of May 14th, with wind speeds of nearly 130 miles per hour, which is similar to the intensity of Cyclone Nargis that hit in 2008,


"It has reached the level of a very strong cyclone. It is predicted to enter the morning and afternoon of May 14th. Now it is getting stronger, so it will reach almost 130 miles, so this is about the intensity of Nargis.


The meaning of the wind being calm is that the storm is not coming. We can also say that it is dangerous. It's like the sea level drops before the tsunami, and the areas that will pass through the storm should constantly listen to the storm level warnings. He said that emergency medicine and equipment must be prepared in advance.

He said there are still almost 40 hours until Mocha hits, which is enough time for people living near the sea coast to evacuate.


The city of Laputta, which is a delta region that suffered from the effects of Storm Nargis, was close to the shore. Residents said that more than 8,000 people are moving away from the coast to avoid the Mocha storm.


Cyclone Mokha is expected in Myanmar, 310 nautical miles west and southwest of Cocoa Island, 400 nautical miles southwest of HaiGyi Island City, 495 nautical miles south and southwest of Sittwe City, India 290 nautical miles west and northwest of Port Pleia, Bangladesh. The Department of Meteorology and Hydrology has announced that it is centered on the sea 530 nautical miles south and southwest of Cox's Bazar.
