influence of Jawad
The effects of cyclone Jawad have begun to appear in the Sundarbans. It has been raining heavily since Saturday morning. Due to the full moon, water in the rivers of the Indian part of the Sundarbans have already started rising.

The last two cyclones, Amphan and Yaas, damaged vast areas of the Sundarbans. The launches and Bhutbhuti running along the river in the Sundarbans were also damaged.

The launch has already been anchored in a safe place following a forecast from the Indian Meteorological Department. The administration has asked fishermen to come out of the river and not to go fishing in the river or sea for the next two days.

Jawad is likely to turn north and northeast. It could take a turn and reach Puri on the Orissa coast on Sunday and gradually weaken. It will then weaken further and move north and northeast towards the coast of West Bengal.

Meanwhile, a special notification issued by the Bangladesh Meteorological Department said that the cyclone 'Jawad', which is located in the West-Central Bay of Bengal and adjoining areas, is moving further north and north-west and is located in the same area.

It was located 1,030 km southwest of Chattogram seaport, 995 km southwest of Cox's Bazar seaport, 885 km south and southwest of Mongla seaport and 895 km south and southwest of Payra seaport at 6 am on Saturday.

Jawad may move further north and northwest. The maximum sustained wind speed within 54 km of the cyclone center is 62 km per hour, which is increasing up to 88 km in the form of gusts or gusty winds. The sea is very rough near the center of the cyclone.
