Expect the highest storm surge levels to occur to the northeast of the point of landfall. The region of peak surge will most likely extend from Ichchapuram to Puri, however, coastal flooding will occur along the coast for hundreds of kilometers. Surge levels may be particularly high near the coastal community of Gopalpur, east of Brahmapur.
