Tropical Cyclone Yaas Live Location, Super Cyclone Yaas Latest Update Live: Cyclone Yaas, which is predicted to make landfall sometime on Wednesday afternoon in Odisha, has intensified into a severe cyclonic storm. The Indian Meteorological Department says that at the time of the landfall, Cyclone Yaas is likely to be in the ‘very severe cyclonic storm’ category. However, some experts suggest that since the storm has been formed closer to land, it won’t get time to travel much longer and may not be that powerful. But at the same time, we can’t be sure about the storms. Even if the degree of the landfall severity may drop a notch, the vast population in the path of Cyclone Yaas is a cause of concern.
According to IMD, severe cyclonic storm Yaas is very likely to cross north Odisha-West Bengal coasts between Paradip and Sagar Island close to the north of Dhamra and south of Balasore, during noon tomorrow as a very severe cyclonic storm. Yaas would continue to move north-northwestwards, intensify further & reach Northwest Bay of Bengal near north Odisha coast very close to Dhamra port by the early morning of May 26, IMD said.
Meanwhile, Paradip Port Trust (PPT) suspended its operations from 2 pm on Tuesday as part of safety measures in view of the impending cyclone storm ‘Yaas’, which is likely to cross the Odisha coast tomorrow (Wednesday). As many as 12 vessels proceeded down to the deep sea so as to avoid the path of the storm.
