Over the North Andaman Sea and the South-East Bay of Bengal, a deep depression has formed. It’s heading north along the coast of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, heading for the Maynmar Coastline. In the next few hours, it is expected to become a cyclonic storm. It will then cross Myanmar’s coast in the early hours of March 23rd. According to the Metrological Department, it is heading away from Mayabunder by 110 kilometres east-southeast.
