Karnataka: Cyclone to unleash heavy rain over State

Bangalore: A cyclone developing over the Arabian Sea is likely to intensify in the next 48 hours bringing heavy rain to coastal Karnataka, according to the Meteorological Department here.

Bangalore and other parts of interior Karnataka will also come within the cyclone’s reach, said B. Putanna, an official with the Met Department. Cloudy skies and rainfall will continue for the next two days at least.

The IMD’s cyclone alert for the south Gujarat and north Maharashtra coast sounds a warning for coastal Karnataka, which, it says, will see “heavy to very heavy” rainfall along with squally winds with speeds “reaching 55 to 65 kmph and gusting to 75 kmph”.

The sea will be very rough along the Karnataka coast, it adds.
