Cyclone Vardah is likely to move towards the west and north-western side of India, maintaining its intensity till Sunday evening, the Navy PRO said early this morning. In addition, the Navy has maintained that the cyclone is likely to weaken gradually while moving towards South Andhra Pradesh coast and adjoining north Tamil Nadu coast.
The Navy PRO has notified that there is a high probability that cyclone Vardah would cross South Andhra coast and the adjoining north Tamil Nadu coast, between Chennai and Ongole on Sunday afternoon. The notification comes after cyclone Vardah hit Eastern India, leaving around 1500 people stranded in the islands of Havelock and Neil on Wednesday. Those stranded in the Andamans were subsequently rescued.
