The Yo Vizag team is constantly in touch with the Cyclone Warning Centre and as per the reports, Titli took shape into a very severe cyclone.

He also directed the departments concerned to take up fix of the damaged roads, restoration of power and drinking water supply and alternative arrangement of power to the water supply centres in the affected districts in the aftermath of the cyclone. Villages in Gopalpur, Gajapati, Ganjam were most affected and power supply was cut.

Wind speed could increase to 140-150 kmph with gusting to 165 kmph from Wednesday midnight night onwards along and off south Odisha and adjoining districts of the north Andhra Pradesh coast.

"The evacuation operation was carried out soon after the warning was issued days before and people are now in relief camps", said Vishnu Pad Sethi, Relief Commissioner (DM), Odisha. Three boats were stranded near Gopalpur port from which 27 fishermen were rescued by the coast guard, said an official from National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA).

The system is now moving northeastwards towards Gangetic West Bengal across Odisha and it will weaken gradually, it said.

Titli, which means butterfly in Hindi, has been categorised as a very severe cyclonic storm. However, more heavy rain is expected in the next 24 hours, which could lead to flooding.

Fishermen have been advised by the Met department not to venture into the sea along and off West Bengal coast, Odisha coast, deep sea areas of North Bay and Central Bay of Bengal till October 12.

"People will continue to remain in the relief camps at least till Friday, and will be shifted as the situation improves".

The Odisha weather department in its early morning bulletin has said that strong surface wind is likely to bash 16 districts of Odisha from 4am to 8am today.

There were no casualties reported so for anywhere in the cyclone-hit areas because of preparedness by official machinery, asserted chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu at a teleconference with the district collectors of Visakhapatnam, Srikakulam and Vizianagaram.

"The centre of the eye of the cyclone that lies over land moved toward Gopalpur in Odisha after hitting the coast in Andhra Pradesh".
