STH Stormwatch : Tracking the depression (08Oct2010)

Heavy and intense rainfall is the main trigger for landslides in this area and as such one of the roles of STH is to monitor rainfall and warn communities. Placed above is an update (IR and Doppler radar image) on the depression (see last post) as it crossed the coast.
Sadly India Meteorological Department (IMetD) warns of YET ANOTHER low pressure which may form in the central Bay of Bengal in the next few days.

For those interested in monitoring the movement of the storms in the Bay of Bengal on the internet, the link is here
