Weather is dynamic and weather systems are known to change their path at their will. Similar situation was witnessed while tracking the path of Cyclone Vardah. From the time of its formation the cyclone was to hit the coastal regions of Andhra Pradesh, but that is not the case now as the many parts of south Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu.
In north Tamil Nadu, regions like Chennai, Tiruvallur, Vellore and Kanchipuram are the regions which will receive heavy to very heavy rainfall for next 2 days as the cyclone makes a landfall over these regions. Regions like Chitoor, Nellore and Cuddapah in Andhra Pradesh will receive rainfall of similar intensity.
Cyclone Vardah is expected to make landfall over these regions by the afternoon of December 12, and will simultaneously give heavy to very heavy rains.
At the time of landfall strong winds and storm surge damage, we can expect the flood like situation in the laying areas of coastal regions.
Earlier the expected path of cyclone was such that it was to make a landfall over Andhra Pradesh, and similarly the Andhra government was alert to combat the situation. With such quick and swift move of the weather system, it is now up to the government of Tamil Nadu and civic authorities of Chennai to prepare quickly as the cyclone to make landfall by tomorrow afternoon.
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu had conducted a teleconference with officials of different departments this morning and advised them to take all necessary measures. "I have cancelled my trip to the Gulf. I will constantly monitor the situation," he told the officials.
