IMD Alert: The IMD has issued a red alert for severe heatwave for Gangetic West Bengal for three days, two days for Odisha, and overall East India is getting an orange alert for the next 3-5 days.

The India Meteorological Department predicted on Wednesday that East India will continue to experience heatwave for the next three days even as it issued a red alert for severe heatwave conditions in Gangetic West Bengal for three days and two days in Odisha.

IMD scientist Soma Sen said, “East India has been witnessing an unusually long spell of severe heat waves." She added, “Mainly, from day 5, which is May 5, we are anticipating a slight fall in temperatures as moisture coming..."

The IMD attributed the severe heatwave conditions to a lesser frequency of thunderstorms in East and Northeast India. "Prolonged heatwave spell over East and South Peninsular India in April is due to the absence of thunderstorms and the persisting anticyclone," said IMD chief Mrutyunjay Mohapatra.
