The deep depression in the Bay of Bengal intensified into cyclonic storm Bulbul on Thursday. The cyclone appeared to have headed towards West Bengal and Bangladesh coasts, where heavy rainfall has been predicted. According to reports, Cyclone Bulbul was likely to skip Odisha but heavy rains were expected.
The intensity of cyclone Maha, on the other hand, has weakened and is expected to fizzle out soon. Mumbai has been receiving light to moderate intensity rainfall due to the effect of cyclone Maha on Friday morning. This has affected the Mumbai locals, which is the lifeline of the city, thus causing inconvenience to the people.
