Several parts of Odisha and West Bengal in India were bracing for heavy rain as the storm was crossing the coast between Machilipatnam and Narasapur in Andhra Pradesh on Wednesday night, the Times of India reported, citing India Meteorological Department.
Most flights at Vizag International Airport in the city of Visakhapatnam were cancelled as the storm was moving in a north-northeasterly direction.
In Bangladesh, the maritime ports have been asked to keep hoisted distant warning signal No. 2. All fishing boats and trawlers over the north Bay have been advised to remain close to the coast and proceed with caution. They are also advised not to venture into the deep sea.
Rains will continue at least until Friday, said meteorologist Muhammad Abul Kalam Mallik.
