Cyclone Fani

Tropical Cyclone Fani in the Bay of Bengal has strengthened to the equivalent of a category 5 hurricane, with maximum sustained winds of 155 miles per hour. The storm is expected to move northward towards the northeastern coast of India, making landfall in eastern Odisha by tomorrow. The cyclone may weaken slightly prior to landfall, but should still be a powerful storm, with maximum sustained winds above 145 mph. The cyclone should then accelerate northeastward and weaken, passing near Kolkata Friday night and early Saturday and into Bangladesh on Saturday. Government officials in the region have already ordered evacuations.
