The Myanmar Times - - News -

HEAVY rain­falls and strong wind rem­i­nisc­ing from a trop­i­cal de­pres­sion, are ex­pected to hit Myan­mar on Oc­to­ber 10-12, ac­cord­ing to The Depart­ment of Me­te­o­rol­ogy and Hy­drol­ogy (DMH).

Ac­cord­ing to the fore­cast, strong weather from the South China Sea may travel west­ward and im­pact Myan­mar.

“As this month is Myan­mar’s sec­ond storm sea­son, we need to be mind­ful of the dan­ger of the weather. We have to look out for heavy rains and strong wind due to the rem­nant of trop­i­cal de­pres­sions, which is a zone of low pres­sure in­duc­ing storms,” Dr Kyaw Moe Oo, di­rec­tor general of the Depart­ment of Me­te­o­rol­ogy and Hy­drol­ogy told The Myan­mar Times on Oc­to­ber 9.

Thun­der­show­ers will be scat­tered in Yan­gon Re­gion, Nay Pyi Taw, Man­dalay Re­gion, Magwe Re­gion, Bago Re­gion, Aye­yarwady Re­gion, Thanintharyi Re­gion, Shan State, Kayah State, Karen State and Mon State.

DMH ad­vises peo­ple liv­ing near high-lands and rivers to be cau­tious of land­slides, sud­den flood­ing and thun­der­storms with strong wind near coastal ar­eas.

A de­pres­sion over the Bay of Ben­gal reached the small storm stage and crossed near Kolkata city in In­dia on Oc­to­ber 9, ac­cord­ing to DMH.

An­other de­pres­sion may oc­cur over the Bay dur­ing the sec­ond week of this month. Cau­tion is ad­vised if a storm results from the de­pres­sion, ex­plained Dr Kyaw Moe Oo. – Myat Moe Aung
