Cyclone Gaja Expected to make landfall tomorrow
District Administration in 7 districts in Delta region including Tanjore,Cuddalore, Nagai, Thiruvaroor, pudukottai , ramanathapuram and Karaikkal. Cyclone gaja is currently moving in with the speed of 7 Kmph and expected to make landfall between cuddalore and pamban tomorrow. As a precautionary measure, authorities have blocked the route to visit Dhanuskodi and informed they will stop the traffic in Pamban depending on the speed of the wind.
Initially it is widely expected to make landfall between Chennai and cuddalore thus bringing much needed rain to Chennai and surrounding areas but now Chennai now expected to get somewhere around 150mm rain in three days during the landfall and after due to pullout effects. Fishermen in those areas are advised not to venture into sea due to rough weather conditions. Still there is some variance in the place of footfall with some private bloggers expecting it to cross between cuddalore and nagai while others are putting larger picture and extending up to Pamban.
