Cyclone Yaas, which has intensified into a very severe cyclonic storm, is on course to eventually hit land to the north of Dhamra and south of Balasore in Odisha around Wednesday noon, more than 290km from Kolkata, thereby leading to a possible slide in impact on the metropolis.

While the distance from the landfall spot could save Kolkata from an Amphan-like destruction, it could still be swept by winds at a speed of 60kmph, gusting to 70kmph, causing substantial damage by Cyclone Yaas. Even though a spell of heavy rain has been predicted for the city on Wednesday, the showers could be light to moderate and sporadic in Kolkata, the Met office said.
