Under the influence of an upper air cyclonic circulation, a low pressure area formed over Andaman Sea on October 6.[20] The system drifted westward and intensified into a depression and subsequently into a deep depression the next day, followed by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) issuing a Troipical cyclone formation alert (TCFA).[21] Owing to favorable environmental conditions, the storm intensified into a cyclonic storm on October 8 and was named Hudhud.[22][23] Its convection consolidated in the following hours, and Hudhud became a Severe Cyclonic Storm on October 9. Hudhud underwent rapid deepening in the following days, intensified into a Very severe cyclonic storm and developed a well-defined eye feature. Shortly before landfall near Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh on October 12, Hudhud reached its peak strength with three minute wind speeds of 175 km/h (109 mph) and a minimum central pressure of 960 hPa (28.35 inHg).[24] The system drifted northwards over land and was last noted as a well-marked low pressure area over east Uttar Pradesh on October 14.[25]
Hudhud brought extensive damage to the coastal districts of Andhra Pradesh. At least 84 deaths were reported due to the storm, and the damage cost was amounted to $9.7 billion, making Hudhud the first storm in the basin to cause at least $9 billion in damage since Nargis in 2008.
