The Odisha government announced five coastal districts under red alert. The government asked the officials to get prepared for the looming cyclonic danger in the state which might hit today.

The Cyclone Titli is presently roaming over the Bay of Bengal which is about 200 km off Gopalpur in Ganjam district. Predictions had been made that it would have landfall between Kalingapatnam in Andhra Pradesh and Gopalpur in Odisha early on Thursday morning and would forward to the coastline in a north-eastern curve where it would slowly lose its intensity.

The officials shared that districts which are put on red alert are coastal districts of Ganjam, Kendrapara, Jagatsinghpur, Puri and Khurda.

H R Biswas, director of Bhubaneswar Meteorological Centre said “Titli, which is expected to be a very severe cyclonic storm, may cause strong wind, with speed ranging between 140 and 150 kmph. It may even reach 165 kmph,” adding “In north coastal Odisha, wind speeds are expected to reach 70-80 kmph.”

State Chief Secretary Aditya Padhi announced to shut off all the schools, colleges and Anganwadi on Thursday and Friday to avoid any kind of negative influence of the approaching storm. He even informed that the student union elections which was scheduled on Thursday in the colleges of the state had been cancelled. People had been prohibited to visit the coast and fishermen have been advised to venture into the sea to avoid loss of lives.

Odisha Chief Minister had employed 10 NDRF and eight Odisha Disaster Rapid Action Force teams for making the “zero casualty” mission successful in the state which is oscillating under the shadow of the monstrous cyclonic storm.

Mr Patnaik even informed about the shifting of around 3 lakh people from coastal areas to the safe place.

Jyoti Prakash Mishra, Chief Public Relations Officer of East Coast Railways (ECoR), shared that  ECoR would change its routes and re-schedule as per the need.

It is predicted that heavy rainfall may follow in Boudh, Cuttack, Dhenkanal, Bhadrak, Kalahandi and Balasore.
