Earlier in the day, IMD DG Mrutyunjay Mohapatra ruled out any possibilities of the system’s landfall in Odisha or Andhra Pradesh.

“The system is now moving towards the coast in a northwestwards direction as a well-marked low pressure. The path will be northwestwards till May 10 and thereafter it will recurve in the sea towards north-northeastwards. After moving north-northeastwards, the system will weaken in the sea,” Mohapatra said
