Bihar is now bracing for the cyclone’s effects, prompting the IMD to issue a cautionary warning to residents.

The cyclone is now set to hit Bihar, bringing pleasant weather to the region. The IMD reported that Cyclone Remal, originating from the Bay of Bengal, has made landfall on the coasts of Bangladesh and West Bengal, but its effects will persist in Bihar for the next four to five days.

The IMD has issued an orange alert for rain in Araria, Kishanganj, Supaul, and Katihar in Bihar.
