According to the data, Kannur in Karnataka recorded 17 m rain, Agumbe 17 mm, Mangalore 32 mm, Gadag 6 mm, while Shirali received 4 mm rains.
The Extremely Severe Cyclonic Storm 'Kyarr' over East-central Arabian Sea continues to move in west-northwestward direction. At present, the system lays centered near latitude 17.0°N and longitude 68.2°E over east-central Arabia Sea, about 540 km West-southwest of Mumbai and 1500 km east of Salalah (Oman). It is very likely to intensify further into a Super Cyclonic Storm during next few hours while continuing to move towards Oman coast during next 5 days.
As the system would move further westwards today, its impact would now start reducing over the Indian Coast. Rains will now take a backseat over Karanataka. However, a few intebse spells cannot be ruled out. By October 28, the speed of winds would ease down and vary between 30 and 40 kmph, gusting 50 to kmph only.
