Event

Flight operations have been temporarily suspended at Kolkata's Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport (CCU) from the evening (local time) of Saturday, November 9, through 06:00 on Sunday, November 10, due to Cyclone Bulbul. Also, notably, West Bengal and Odisha states have recorded one death each due to associated heavy rainfall.

As of around 23:30 on Saturday, the center of Bulbul was located near 21.6°N, 88.9°E, with the storm packing maximum sustained winds of around 150 kph (90 mph) and moving northeastward at 15 kph (9 mph).

Consequent flooding, landslides, and power outages are possible in affected areas over the coming days, as well as associated disruptions to business and transportation, including additional flight delays and cancelations.  

Advice

Individuals in the affected areas are advised to monitor local weather reports, confirm flight reservations, adhere to instructions issued by local authorities, anticipate adverse weather and power and transportation disruptions, and remember that running water can be dangerous - 15 cm (6 in) is enough to knock over an adult - and never drive through flooded streets; floodwater may also contain wastewater and chemical products.
