The landfall process of cyclone ‘Gulab’ was completed on Monday (27th September) said the India Meteorological Department (IMD). 

“The landfall process has been completed. However, the system maintains its cyclonic storm intensity and is likely to move nearly westwards and weaken into a deep depression during the next four-five hours,” said IMD.

The cyclonic storm Gulab, previously over north Andhra Pradesh and adjoining to south Odisha, weakened into a deep depression on Monday, at 2.30 a.m. over north Andhra Pradesh and is expected to keep moving towards west-northwest for the next six hours, weakening further into a depression.

The IDM’s statement said, “The cyclonic storm ‘Gulab’ (pronounced Gul-Aab) over north Coastal Andhra Pradesh moved nearly westwards with a speed of 26 kmph during last six hours and lay centred at 2230 hrs over North Coastal Andhra Pradesh near Lat 18.4°N and Long 83.5°E, about 180 km west-southwest of Gopalpur (Odisha) and 60 km west-northwest of Kalingapatnam (Andhra Pradesh).”

Two fishermen from Andhra Pradesh’s Srikakulam drowned due to turbulence in the water, and one went missing after a boat capsized in the Bay of Bengal a day before. 

The IMD issued a red alert for cyclone warnings in Odisha and Andhra Pradesh with an announcement for fishermen to remain away from the water.
