"We have not yet sought help of Army".

The coastal alert has been put at 10 - the highest with fishermen prohibited from venturing into the sea for the next few days.

Odisha Chief Secretary Aditya Padhi announced that all schools, colleges and anganwadis would remain closed on Thursday and Friday.

It is expected to move towards the plains of Bengal and weaken gradually. "However, the landfall process will continue for next two to three hours as wall cloud in the rear sector of the cyclone is yet to enter completely into the land", P Mahapatra, Regional Specialised Meteorological Centre (RSMC) of India Meteorology Department (IMD), said while speaking to the Hindustan Times. The Met department warned of heavy to very heavy rain in several districts of Gangetic West Bengal till Saturday morning and heavy rain for another day thereafter.

A severe cyclonic storm packing winds of up to 150 kmph and widespread rains had hit Odisha and Andhra Pradesh Thursday, killing eight people in Andhra Pradesh and one in Odisha.

The sea condition is very high over west-central Bay of Bengal.

As it hit the coast, the sustained winds were 165 kilometres per hour, meaning the system would have been classed as a category 2 hurricane if it were rated on the 5-point Saffir-Simpson hurricane scale.

"Some destruction was reported from Ganjam and Gajapati districts", Special Relief Commissioner (SRC) B P Sethi said.

Around 300 motor boats have been arranged to assist in rescue operation as there is a likelihood of flood situation due to possibility of heavy rains till October 11.

In all, eight districts - Ganjam, Gajapati, Khurda, Puri, Jagatsinghpur, Kendrapara, Bhadrak and Balasore - have been affected by "very severe cyclone Titli", he said.
