  • Cyclone Titli: 3 Lakh Evacuated in Odisha, Flood Fears Arise

Director of Meteorological (MeT) Centre Bhubaneswar H.R. Biswas said the "very severe cyclonic storm" is being monitored by the coastal Doppler Weather Radars at Visakhapatnam, Gopalpur and Paradip.

Indian Railways suspended trains bound for Srikakulam and the Andhra Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC) also withdrew its bus services covering the cyclone-affected areas and power supply was shut down in the wake of warnings sounded by IMD. The department had advised complete suspension of fishing operations and asked people to stay indoors.

Gopalpur in Odisha reported 102kmph and Kalingapatnam 56kmph surface wind speed at 5:30am, IMD said in a bulletin.

Strong gusts caused a storm surge with waters inundating low-lying areas in the eastern states of Odisha and Andhra Pradesh, and the winds, on par with a Category 2 hurricane, wreaked havoc on infrastructure, blocking roads and hampering emergency work.

Odisha government has set the target for "zero casualties".

According to the local administration, the situation is under control, as the wind speed has begun to decrease and the cyclone is dissipating.

Selena Gomez reportedly suffers mental health crisis
According to TMZ , the first incident occurred in the last week of September at the star's home in Studio City, California. Gomez's 90-day treatment in Tennessee came amid her Revival World Tour, causing her to cancel the remaining concert dates.

Districts like Ganjam, Gajapati, Puri, Jagatsinghpur, Kendrapara, Khurda, Nayagarh, Cuttack, Jajpur, Bhadrak and Balasore are expected to receive heavy to very heavy rainfall till Thursday, the IMD said.

"The storm has caused heavy to very heavy rainfall in some districts of Odisha, damage to houses, street lights and roadblocks due to fallen trees", said Special Relief Commissioner Bishnupada Sethi. After landfall, it may recurve and move towards West Bengal and northeast states. The rainfall intensity will decrease from Friday.

All fishing boats and trawlers over North Bay and the deep sea have been advised to remain sheltered till further notice.

"We fear that 6,000 to 7,000 electricity poles may have been uprooted", K Dhananjaya Reddy, the district administrative chief of Srikakulam district in Andhra Pradesh, told Reuters news agency.

But the extent of collateral damage was not as heavy compared to Cyclone Phailin-an extremely severe cyclone that hit the coast in 2013-the most intense cyclone to make landfall in India since the 1999 Odisha cyclone.
