The Meteorological Department on Thursday said that the Cyclone Nada is expected to weaken in the next 12 hours in the coastal areas of Tamil Nadu.
The state was again put on alert almost a year after floods caused severe disruption of normal life and damaged property.
As per the latest information, the cyclone is presently about 210 kilometres east southeast of Puducherry.
It is likely to cross between Vedharanyam and Cuddalore by December 2 morning.
However, keeping in view the weakening of the cyclone, chances of flooding are receding.
