STH Storm Watch: Tropical Cyclone 04B in the north Bay of Bengal (01Aug2023)

 Whereas JTWC has issued Warning No 2 for 'Tropical Cyclone 04B (with tracks)' in the north Bay of Bengal, IMD still categorizes the storm as a 'deep depression' and the track is shown below:
In the morning, only an 'Orange' warning for heavy rain had been issued for S Bengal which has been upgraded at around 10.30hrs to RED warning for some areas of S Bengal and Odisha.

Updated track of the storm at 2pm/01Aug2023

Hope the storm intensity and rainfall remains within manageable limits, because the projected track passes over densely populated areas of S Bengal.
