"The cyclonic storm 'Gulab' (pronounced As Gul-Aab) over north coastal Andhra Pradesh moved nearly westwards with a speed of 26 Kmph during last 6 hours and lay centred at 2230 hrs over north coastal Andhra Pradesh near Lat 18.4°N and Long 83.5°E, about 180 km West-Southwest of Gopalpur (Odisha) and 60 km West-northwest of Kalingapatnam (Andhra Pradesh)," the IMD said.

Due to turbulence in the sea on the account of cyclonic storm Gulab, two fishermen from Andhra Pradesh's Srikakulam died and one went missing after a boat capsized in the Bay of Bengal on Sunday.

A red alert was issued in Odisha and Andhra Pradesh for a cyclonic warning, and fishermen were alerted to stay away from the sea by the IMD on Sunday.
