New Delhi, Sep 28 (TIWN) It started as a 'Low Pressure Area' (LPA) over east-central Bay of Bengal on September 24; by September 25 noon, it had turned into a well-marked LPA over east-central Bay of Bengal and by night, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) had issued a pre-cyclone watch alert for north Andhra Pradesh and adjoining south Odisha.

It intensified into a Cyclonic Storm by Saturday, which would cross over south Odisha - north Andhra Pradesh coast on Sunday evening.  As the Cyclonic Storm 'Gulab' made landfall over the identified coastal area and crossed over the land by late Sunday night, the system maintained its cyclonic storm intensity and weakened into a Deep Depression only in the early hours on Monday and continued its westward march.  The Deep Depression, the same remnant of Cyclonic Storm Gulab, weakened into a Depression over north Telangana and adjoining south Chhattisgarh and Vidarbha by Monday evening.
