    Coastal areas of India’s southern Kerala state faced ravaging pre-storm winds and heavy rains on Saturday.

    The meteorological department issued a red alert in five districts of the state in the wake of cyclone Tauktae, including Alappuzha district.

    Roofs of houses collapsed in the Pathirapally region of Alappuzha, leaving many people homeless, while some regions faced incessant rains and subsequent flooding in villages, prompting authorities to move villagers to higher terrain.

    The storm is expected to intensify into a “severe cyclonic storm” by evening, the India Meteorological Department (IMD), and is likely to make landfall on the western coast of India on May 17.

    In This Story: Cyclone

    In meteorology, a cyclone is a large scale air mass that rotates around a strong center of low atmospheric pressure. Cyclones are characterized by inward spiraling winds that rotate about a zone of low pressure and typically bring winds, rain, high waves and storm surges to the areas they pass.

    In the Atlantic and the northeastern Pacific oceans, a tropical cyclone is generally referred to as a hurricane (from the name of the ancient Central American deity of wind, Huracan), in the Indian and south Pacific oceans it is called a cyclone, and in the northwestern Pacific it is called a typhoon.
