GUWAHATI, MAY 5 (AGENCIES) | Publish Date: 5/5/2019 11:26:24 AM IST

India Meteorological Department (IMD) has said that ‘Cyclone Fani’ has hugely weakened and turned into a depression since Saturday.

Due to the impact of the cyclone, the North Eastern region had been witnessing intermittent rain this week but since Saturday evening there has been continuous downpour with dense fog blocking clear visibility, IMD stated.

However, IMD officials have said though FANI is expected to touch the northeastern states causing medium to heavy rains, there was no major threat as it has been weakened.

IMD informed that there would be widespread rainfall over Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura while the weather is expected to start clearing up from Monday.

Meanwhile, the death toll in Cyclone Fani rose to 29 on May 5, two days after the “extremely severe” storm barrelled through coastal Odisha, causing widespread destruction and leaving hundreds grappling with water shortage and power cuts, officials said.
