- Arctic blast in Central and Eastern U.S.
- Very severe cyclonic storm in the Bay of Bengal.
(Yep! I am feeling some of the effect of this here right now in Berhampur/Brahmapur, 10 kms from the Gopalpur beach, where I leave. In previous years, my town has taken a ‘direct hit’ from winds ranging up to 180 kms which caused a lot of damage. This time, ‘BulBul’ is just ‘passing by’ 100 kms away from here … in the Bay of Bengal, travelling northwards.)
