People from villages come to Laputta to avoid storm

Thousands of people from the villages below Laputta city in the delta region of Ayeyawady Region came to Labutta to avoid the storm, according to Heart Laputta, a health care organization in Laputta city.
The people of Laputta villages who have suffered from the effects of Cyclone Nargis arrived at monasteries in Laputta starting on 6 May, and there are thousands of people there on 9 May.
The people fleeing from the storm have been accommodated in some monasteries and schools in Laputta and fed by the collective donations of the residents.
According to the forecast of the Department of Meteorology and Hydrology at 5:30 pm MST yesterday, the well-marked low-pressure area over the Southeast Bay of Bengal and adjoining South Andaman Sea persist. It is likely to intensify into a depression during the next six hours and into a cyclonic storm over the East Central Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea around 10 May 2023. The cyclonic storm is likely to move North-Northwestwards and reach the east-central Bay of Bengal around 11 May 2023 and then recurve North- Northeastwards and move to Bangladesh-Myanmar Coasts.
In answer to Green Way’s question: “Is Ayeyawady, which was predicted to be accessible by previous routes, missed?”, Meteorologist U Win Naing said, “The storm will not hit directly. The current size of the storm is big, and it is a little bigger than the size of the Rakhine coast. Also, the storm’s central wind speed is about 135 miles per hour. When the storm moves in, the wind speed and the mass of the cloud in the storm will have the strongest effect on the right side of the storm. For example, if the storm hits Kyaukpyu, the Ayeyawady Delta region below Kyaukpyu, as well as Yangon, Bago, and Magway regions, are on the right side of the storm. Nay Pyi Taw, Shan State (South), Kayah State, Kayin State, and Mon State are also included. All of these are on the right side, so the wind speed will be stronger than on the left side. Another thing is that the impact of the storm and the clouds will be greater. To put these together, the wind will be strong, and there will be heavy rain.” — Htun Htun/CT
