Regional Meteorological Centre (RMC) director G K Das said that a rainy spell is likely in Kolkata and other parts of coastal Bengal from October 2 to 5.

Typhoon Noru is set to cross Vietnam, Thailand and Myanmar before reaching northeast and east-central Bay of Bengal as a cyclonic circulation. The system is likely to reach the Bay of Bengal via Thailand and Myanmar. While on land, the storm will weaken. But once in the sea, it will gain some steam again, said Das.

Typhoon Noru has caused havoc in northern Philippines leaving some people dead, causing floods and power outages and forcing officials to suspend classes and government work in some provinces.
