Tropical Storm "Hudhud" developed in Bay of Bengal

Tropical Storm

An area of low pressure near the Andaman and Nicobar Islands in Northern Indian Ocean developed in Tropical Storm "Hudhud" on October 8, 2014. This is the third tropical system and first tropical storm this year in Bay of Bengal.

Favorable environment in Bay of Bengal will allow the system to strengthen into the strongest cyclone of the year in the northern Indian Ocean. It is expected to intensify into at least a Category 3 cyclone before hits the central east coast of India. JTWC expects Hudhud to make landfall near north Andhra Pradesh and south Odisha coasts between Visakhapatnam and Gopalpur on October 10, 2014.

According to JTWC public advisory issued at 21:00 UTC on October 8, Hudhud had maximum sustained winds near 92 km/h (58 mph) with gusts up to 120 km/h (75 mph) as it was moving west-northwestward at speed of 20 km/h (13 mph). The system was centered about 549 nm south of Chittagong, India.
