Tropical Cyclone Yaas, the equivalent of a tropical storm on the Saffir Simpson Wind Scale, is continuing to move northwestward and is currently centered in Dhakata, Odisha, India, located one mile (1 km) southeast of Munduam, Jharkhand, India, after making landfall on Wednesday morning local time, May 26. Yaas has maximum sustained winds up to 46 miles per hour (75 km/h) and gusts of up to 53 miles per hour (85 km/h) per hour. Yass is forecast to gradually weaken to a depression over the next three hours over Jharkand state on Thursday early morning local time, May 27. Heavy rainfall is expected in multiple locations in Jharkand and the areas of Medinipur, Khargram, and Bankura in West Bengal over the next 12 hours as Yaas weakens. Odisha and other locations in West Bengal are forecast to experience light to moderate rainfall. Yaas has killed at least six people, including three in Anandpur, Balasore, and Keonjhar in Odisha, and two in Hooghly and one in Asanol in West Bengal. In India, at least two million people in India have been evacuated in low-lying areas in West Bengal and Odisha. Multiple airports in Odisha and West Bengal remain closed ahead of Tropical Cyclone Yaas; flight operations reportedly resumed at Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport (CCU). Train services on multiple train lines have been suspended. In Odisha, Balasore and Bhadrak districts have reportedly sustained damages to its power and water infrastructure.

Approximately ten million people have been impacted. Additionally, the India Metrological Department (IMD) has issued Heavy Rain warnings for West Bengal and Odisha.
