As overcast heavy rain to moderate light rain accompanied by squally wind speed reaching 50-60 kmps gusting to 70 kmph is likely to occur all over the Districts in the State during this week due to the cyclonic storm ‘Remal’, the Nagaland State Disaster Management Authority (NSDMA) has advised the public to exercise caution.

In a press release, NSDMA, Home Department, informed that the cyclonic storm system is likely to move north-northeastwards and gradually weaken further into deep depression by the evening of 27th May 2024. Cyclone Remal had weakened to a cyclonic storm on Monday morning after making a landfall between Sagar Island in West Bengal and Khepupara in Bangladesh around midnight on Sunday.

NSDMA informed that due to the persistent rainfall is expected in the State during the next 24 hours, moderate flash flood risk over few rivers and foothill areas of the State is likely to occur and therefore the Authority has urged the public to exercise caution and avoid going to rivers and lakes to avoid eventualities of drowning and other casualties due to the flash flood, landslide induced by cyclonic persistent rainfall.

The NSDMA also request all the District Disaster Management Authorities and other line departments to be on alert to attend to any eventualities and save lives and properties.
