Cyclone Michaung, currently brewing over the Bay of Bengal, is anticipated to make its landfall between the Machilipatnam and Nellore districts of Andhra Pradesh on Monday morning. The India Meteorological Department forecast wind speeds might reach 100kmph, with Chennai and its neighboring districts receiving heavy rain when the cyclone nears the coastal areas of Tamil Nadu. IMD Deputy Director General S Balachandran said the system may intensify into a deep depression on Saturday and a cyclonic storm on Sunday.
