As per the Cyclone Warning Unit of the IMD, also known as the Indian Meteorological Unit:

The Deep Depression across West Central Bay of Bengal has advanced western-northwest at a pace of 17 km per hour over the last 06 hours and was based at 0530 hrs Indian Standard Time today, 13th day of October 2020 around 16.9 ° N latitude as well as 82.5 ° E longitude, approximately 120 km south-southwest of Visakhapatnam, adjacent to (inside of 25 km) Kakinada (Andhra Pradesh) as well as 100 km almost eastern-northeast of Narsapur (Andhra Pradesh).

Recent observations suggest that the storm crossed the north coast of Andhra Pradesh around Kakinada (around Lat. 17.0 ° N & Long 82.4 ° E) between 0630 and 0730 hrs Indian Standard Time today, 13th day of October 2020, mostly as Deep Depression with such a maximum sustained wind direction of 55-65 km per h gusting to 75 km / h.

According to the Radar imagery, the rain bands lie all along coastline regions of Andhra Pradesh and the adjacent interior constituencies. Strong convection is already in the south of Odisha as well as Telangana.

The Met Department expected heavy rainfall in remote areas over northern Andhra Pradesh and Rayalaseema as just a deep depression over the west-central Bay of Bengal reached the northern Andhra coast near Kakinada on Tuesday and over the northern coast of the state.

Due to drought, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) is forecasting harm through the East and West Godavari districts, Visakhapatnam, Vizianagaram, Srikakulam and Krishna districts in the North Coastal AP, along with Yanam due to rain and strong winds.

Timbered huts can sustain damage together with fallen trees and branches, other than breaching the Kutcha road owing to heavy rainfall.

The IMD is also expecting any disruption to paddy fields, banana and papaya crops as well as orchards. Drumstick trees including horticultural crops are also expected to suffer as do coastal cultivation due to salt spraying.
