Cyclone ‘Hudhud’ getting higher depression; may hit Odisha on 12th October

The upper air cyclonic movement over Gulf of Siam (Thailand) and its neighbor south-west Asian countries is getting deeper now, which may hit Odisha and Seemandhra coastal within 12th of October 2014 as per recent report of IMD, India Meteorological Department.

The possible cyclone ‘Hudhud’ (is an Oman’s contribution to the list of storm names, see list of storm names below) is may be going severe as heavy rainstorm occurred in some parts of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Last year on 8th of October 2013, this kind of low pressure concentrated and caused deep depression in Bay of Bengal, and Phailin occurred. Similarly some depiction of cyclonic storm is going to emerge within 36hrs.


328 coastal villages in Odisha were alerted

Habitants of more than 10 lakh in 328 nos. of coastal villages in Odisha were already informed through news and hourly telecasting and radioing by IMD cyclone warning division of Odisha. However, it was not an officially alerted as it is still one day to get a clear satellite picture; as it was indicating a form over Tenasserim coast and Andaman, which is about 1,300 km from Gopalpur-on-Sea. It was said by the IMD that the cyclonic storm may enter hit Odisha at a speed of 130-140km per hour.
