STH Stormwatch (12Oct2014) : Very Severe Cyclone 'Hudhud' makes landfall

As I write, the eye of the storm has just crossed Vishakapatnam and fortunately not much damage has been done (tho 2 rain related deaths are being reported) - however, as in the previous cyclones which have hit this area, the flooding and devastation often takes place AFTER the cyclone/depression has moved inland releasing huge amounts of precipitation.
Thus, the worse may be yet to come.
