A cyclonic storm, which has been nicknamed “Ward”, is moving towards Tamil Nadu. It’s currently formed over Bay of Bengal and is expected to reach Tamil Nadu in the next 48 hrs.
The storm was formed because of a deep depression that formed 700 kms off the Chennai coast. 55-65 kmph wind speed can be expected in Tamil Nadu as a result of the storm. Heavy showers are predicted over coastal Tamil Nadu and Puducherry regions starting from 12th Dec.
The storm remained practically stationery over south-west and adjoining south-east Bay of Bengal, but is expected to move towards Tamil Nadu in next 48 hrs.
