NSDMA says cyclone Amphan will not affect the state directly

Dimapur, May 19 (EMN): Nagaland is expected to experience scattered rainfall and thundershowers, particularly during evening and night in the next few days.

According to an update from the Nagaland State Disaster Management Authority (NSDMA), cyclone Amphan will make landfall over coastal West Bengal near Digha on May 20 between 2 pm to 6 pm but Nagaland would not be directly impacted by the storm.

However, there will be a spike in the weather activity over Nagaland from May 20 and will last till May 28 or till 31, it said.

Thunder squalls with severe lightning are also expected during this period.

“The cyclone will rapidly weaken after crossing the coast and within 12 hours, it will move across Bangladesh. The cyclone will then weaken to a depression and thereafter to a low pressure while moving across Meghalaya, lower Assam and western half of Arunachal Pradesh,” it informed.

District disaster management authority and other ‘line departments’ who are responsible to attend to any emergencies caused by natural calamities have been requested to be on alert during this period.

It has also urged the public to be vigilant during this period. “Public are requested not to shelter under large trees and near the river banks to prevent unnecessary risk to life from lightning and flash flood,” it added.
