Cyclone DAYE Latest updates: Cyclone Daye crossed Odisha state and has moved towards Chattishgarh state. According to the latest IMD report, it was centred roughly east-southeast of Raipur. It is very likely to continue to move west-northwestwards and weaken gradually into a Depression during next 12 hours.

Cyclone DAYE, which made landfall in Odisha at midnight, has since weakened and will become a Tropical Depression by Friday afternoon. The Tropical Cyclone (now downgraded to a deep depression) will cause heavy rain, thunderstorm and gusty winds around northeastern, eastern, central and western India on Friday.

In Odisha, water level has increased in Kolab dam which lead to two gates being opened. Meanwhile, a flood-like situation in parts of Baleswar district, following heavy downpour, has thrown normal life out of gear.

The Kankarkonda, Korkonda, Poteru and MV 37 rivers have swollen and are flowing above the red mark following heavy rainfall in Malkangiri district. The water level has increased in Balimela water reservoir in Chitrakonda area of the district.

After crossing the Odisha coast, Cyclone DAYE will head in a classical west-north-west direction (diagonal across Central and Western India) over the weekend and early next week.

The cyclonic depression having peaked into a full-fledged storm early on Friday will have gusty wind speeds of up to 70 to 80 km/hr and it would continue to move west-north-west over land after crossing the Odisha coast, and weaken back into a deep depression on Friday next week.

In Odisha, the district administrations of Puri and Ganjam have been asked to carry out evacuation in vulnerable and low-lying areas in their respective regions, if necessary. All concerned departments have been put on alert and the situation is being closely monitored.

Cyclonic storm 'DAYE' crossed the coast near Gopalpur in Odisha early Friday, triggering heavy downpour accompanied by high velocity wind in several parts of the state.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) had issued a warning on Thursday for south Odisha and coastal Andhra Pradesh.

In an official release at 6 pm, the IMD said there is a deep depression over west central Bay of Bengal which was likely to intensify into a cyclonic storm with wind speed of 60-70 kmph in next 12 hours.

The IMD said the deep depression lay centred over west central Bay of Bengal about 290 km east-southeast of Kalingapatnam (Coastal Andhra Pradesh) and about 270 km southeast of Gopalpur (Odisha).

"It is likely to intensify into a cyclonic storm during next 12 hours. It is very likely to move west-northwestwards and cross south Odisha, north Andhra Pradesh coasts between Kalingapatnam and Puri (Odisha), close to Gopalpur around mid-night of Thursday as a cyclonic storm with wind speed of 60-70 kmph gusting to 80 kmph," it said.

Meanwhile, Odisha chief minister Naveen Patnaik asked officials of the coastal districts to be alert and prepared. Patnaik issued direction for cancelling holiday in government offices in Ganjam, Gajapati, Puri, Nayagarh and Khurda districts, which are likely to be hit by fierce winds.
