The cyclonic storm, Daye, that formed over northwest Bay of Bengal on Thursday crossed south Odisha and north Andhra Pradesh coast, close to Gopalpur, early today, bringing heavy rains and strong winds in various districts in the region. The Indian Meteorological Department said the storm is moving west-northwestwards and is expected to weaken gradually into a deep depression. As ‘Daye’ made landfall in Odisha Friday morning, several parts of the state experienced heavy rainfall. A warning was also sent out to fishermen to not venture out into northwest Bay of Bengal and north Andhra Pradesh coasts in the next 24 hours. Most of the areas of Odisha and coastal Andhra Pradesh will receive heavy rainfall, while some isolated areas may receive heavy to very heavy rainfall.
