Cyclone ‘Sitrang’ likely to bring heavy rain, dampen Diwali cheer in Bengal and Odisha

Kolkata, 24/10: The southern districts of West Bengal, including Kolkata, woke up to light rain and an overcast sky on Monday as cyclone ‘Sitrang’ moved towards north Bay of Bengal, raising the likelihood of a downpour during the day and threatening to dampen Diwali festivities.



The system is expected to make a landfall between Tinkona island and Sandwip in Bangladesh early on October 25, the Met department said.


It lay centred around 430 km south of Sagar Island on Monday morning, the department said.
