The deep depression formed over the east central Arabian Sea has intensified into a severe cyclonic storm and it is about 820 km west-southwest of Mumbai at Latitude 15.5 degree north and Longitude 66.5 degree East.

There was practically no change in the position of the cyclonic storm between 5.30 am and 8.30 am on Sunday, Indian Meteorological Department, Pune Director, R R Lele, said.

The system is likely to intensify further and move slowly in a west-northwesterly direction. The off-shore trough at sea level from Karnataka to Kerala coast persists.

The cyclonic circulation over southwest bay off south Tamil Nadu persists and now lies between 2.1 and 5.8 km above sea level.

A cyclonic circulation lies over Uttaranchal and neighbourhood between 0.9 and 2.1 km above sea level.
