This is an image from 6:32am CDT showing (charcoal gray) the central dense overcast. This is the most impressive I have ever seen.
Here are details of how Cyclone = Hurricane Phailin is expected to affect that region of India.

The forecast is superimposed over the latest satellite image. Note, because the storm is so strong and well organized, it is expected to remain a hurricane well inland. The dark dot between the red and "5" purple symbol is the current position of the eye.
This will be a major disaster in India. 

Local India television coverage is here.
