STH stormwatch: Feeling Phailin in the Himalayas


STH has been following the development and movement of Cyclone Phailin since its inception near the  Andaman Islands on 08Oct2013. Having observed it make landfall in Odisha last evening and move inland, I have been tracking the cloud movement the entire day today and feel rather surprised that the cloud mass from the remnants of Phailin has moved over us in the Sub-Himalayan West Bengal (SHWB) and Sikkim.
In keeping with this movement Regional Meteorological Centre Kolkata has issued a severe weather warning for heavy rainfall in our region.
