It may hit the west-central Bay of Bengal off the north Andhra and south Odisha coasts by Saturday morning.

“Depression intensified into a DD at 0530 hrs IST of 3rd Dec2021, over the west-central & adjoining south BoB near Lat. 13.4°N & Long. 86.4°E. To intensify into a CS during next 12hrs & likely to reach west-central BoB off north Andhra Pradesh–south Odisha coasts by tomorrow morning,” informed the IMD.

Jawad is the third cyclone to hit the eastern coast this year after Yaas and Gulab. The cyclone is expected to cause heavy to very heavy rainfall in parts of Odisha, Andhra Pradesh, and West Bengal, IMD informed on Thursday.

As a result, the Odisha government has issued a red alert in many regions near the east coast. The Director-General of IMD, Mrutyunjay Mohapatra requested the fishermen to stay off the coast.

Meanwhile, the center and the Odisha government are working jointly to reduce the damage as much as possible. On Thursday, the Prime Minister had held a meeting with top officials to review the situation.

Several teams from the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), Odisha Disaster Rapid Action Force (ODRAF), and state fire department have been deployed for rescue and evacuation operations.

The Andhra Pradesh government has put the official machinery in the three north coastal districts on high alert. Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy spoke to Collectors of Srikakulam, Vizianagaram and Visakhapatnam districts on Thursday and directed them to take all precautionary measures.

A CMO release said the Chief Minister asked the Collectors to make arrangements for setting up relief camps wherever required.

“Ensure that nobody faces any problem because of the cyclonic storm. Be alert, particularly in the case of low-lying and vulnerable areas,” Jagan told the Collectors.
