Even after landfall, Titli will continue to bring dangerous flooding and gusty winds to parts of India and Bangladesh into the weekend.
The storm rapidly strengthened to a very severe cyclonic storm on Wednesday before making landfall early Thursday morning, local time.
Despite losing wind intensity as it moves over land, Titli will still bring hazardous weather conditions to the region into the weekend.
Very Severe Cyclonic Storm #Titli made landfall just SW of #Gopalpur around 0430-0530, IST. Gopalpur reported wind speeds of 126 km/h (78 mph). Heavy rain will spread from #Odisha to #Bangladesh & NE #India from Thursday into early Sunday. pic.twitter.com/Rx3Rvzp7Q5— Jason Nicholls (@jnmet) October 11, 2018
Locations at risk for impacts include Brahmapur, Puri, Kharagpur and Kolkata in India; and Dhaka, Khulna and Chittagong in Bangladesh.
Titli will unleash torrential rainfall and intense winds on far northeast Andhra Pradesh and Odisha.
The strongest winds remained confined to the coasts of northeastern Andhra Pradesh and southern Odisha, bringing down waves of trees.
Total rainfall of 100-200 mm (4-8 inches) is expected through late Saturday, with an AccuWeather StormMax™ of 300 mm (12 inches).
Into Saturday, Titli will drift northeastward towards the India-Bangladesh border, continuing to lose strength as it does so.
Winds will diminish from into Saturday as the storm moves northeast; however, there will still be a risk for locally damaging winds and power outages. This includes areas like West Bengal and Bangladesh that so far have dodged much of the winds from Titli.
This tropical rainfall across Bangladesh comes just a few days following heavy rain that reached the area earlier this week. The additional rain from Titli into the weekend, will elevate the risk for flooding, mudslides and travel disruptions.
A period of tranquil weather will follow the storm early next week, providing good conditions for any recovery efforts.
