Cyclone Mocha: Myanmar, Bangladesh prepare to deal with fury of first cyclone of 2023| Oneindia News

Tropical cyclone Mocha that was predicted to make landfall on the eastern coast of India is strengthening…but it is now on course to hit western Myanmar and Bangladesh’s Cox Bazar…where around 1 million people live in flimsy shelters in what many consider to be the world’s largest refugee camp.

It will convert into a severe storm on May 12… & a very severe cyclone on May 14, as per the predictions by the Indian Meteorological Department.

If current forecasts hold, Mocha will be the most strongest and most dangerous to hit the region since Cyclone Giri of 2010.

Mocha is the first cyclone to form in Bay of Bengal this year.

The term “cyclone” refers to a type of tropical cyclone that forms in the Bay of Bengal or the Arabian Sea…both located in the northern Indian Ocean.
