The Cylone Warning Centre at Chennai said that the cylone has changed its course and that it is moving northward from the sea and is expected to move over south Gujarat and north Maharashtra by December 5 midnight. During this period, the sea will remain rough in states like Kerala, Karnataka, Goa, Maharashtra, Gujarat etc.

Sea near Mogaveerapatna, Kaiko, Killeriyanagar, Mukkacheri, Subashnagar etc receded 20 feet backward and people have returned to their houses. At the same time, people are unhappy at the slow pace of building of protective wall at Uchila Peribail against the surging sea.
