Kolkata Airport Authority of India has announced the suspension of flight operations for 21 hours, starting from 12 am on May 26 to 9 am on May 27, due to Cyclone Remal's landfall. This decision was made in light of the cyclone's expected impact on the coastal region of West Bengal, including Kolkata. Heavy winds and heavy to very heavy rainfall are predicted for Kolkata during this period.

Furthermore, Cyclone Remal is predicted to have a significant impact on the coastal region of West Bengal, including the city of Kolkata. NDRF Inspector Zaheer Abbas reassured that they are fully prepared for the cyclone, with soldiers ready to deal with any potential disasters, equipped and trained for situations such as tree falling or flood rescue.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a severe cyclone warning for the northeastern region of India and coastal areas of Bangladesh. Cyclone Remal is expected to make landfall in Bengal on Sunday, bringing extremely heavy rainfall and strong winds. The anticipated landfall is projected to occur in West Bengal and the coastal regions of Bangladesh around midnight on May 26.

IMD Agartala Director, Partha Roy, mentioned that the low-pressure area observed in the Bay of Bengal has intensified and will further intensify into a cyclone, moving towards northeastern India. The primary regions affected by the cyclone are West Bengal, Coastal Bangladesh, Tripura, and some other parts of northeastern states. Residents in these areas have been urged to prepare for adverse weather conditions starting from May 26. The current warning for Cyclone Remal is effective until May 28, with potential for extension based on the situation's requirements.
