The cyclonic storm is currently located 320 km away from the coast of Thiruvananthapuram. Meanwhile, the IMD has said that Kerala does not come in the path of the cyclone.

However, the state will experience heavy rainfall and storm as a result of Maha, IMD said. Following this, a high alert has been proclaimed in the coastal areas of the state. Fisherfolks have been warned against going into the sea.

While asking the public and authorities to be cautious, it has also warned about the possibilities of strong wind and high tides in the coastal areas.
