Cyclonic storm Nada has further weakened into a depression as predicted and is currently making land fall between Nagapattinam and Vedaranyam in Tamil Nadu, the MeT Department said on Friday.

“A large chunk of the depression has crossed coast early morning. However, over 25% of the system is yet to make the land fall which will happen soon,” a MeT official in Chennai said.

He said mild to moderate rain coupled with squally winds were being witnessed in parts of Tamil Nadu.

Cyclone Nada which weakened into a deep depression on Thursday moved Westnorth-West wards and became a depression about 40 km East south East of Karaikkal (Puducherry Union Territory), the official said.

Meanwhile, top government authorities said the situation is being monitored continuously.
