Cyclone Vayu likely to make landfall in Gujarat coast on Thursday

Cyclone 'Vayu' intensifies into severe cyclonic storm

The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) issued an alert in Gujarat as the Cyclone Vayu intensifies in Arabian Sea. "It is being closely monitored by IMD and might make landfall in Gujarat, but even if it does not, it is close enough to the landmass that the impact of cyclone will be felt along the Western coast", said Dr K Sathi Devi, a scientist at the IMD. The western parts of Saurashtra and Kutch region in Gujarat are likely to witness "heavy to very heavy rains" between June 12 and June 14.

Vayu will become a Severe Cyclonic Storm by tonight and further intensify into a Very Severe Cyclonic Storm further giving heavy to very heavy rains over many parts of Saurashtra in Gujarat.

With the very likelihood of Vayu becoming a Very Severe Cyclonic storm also, cities of Jamnagar, Somnath, Porbandar, Dwarka, Okha, Veraval, Bhuj and Naliya need to be put on alert as heavy rains are expected over these cities.

According to the IMD, Cyclone Vayu was around 630 kilometres south-southwest off Mumbai, Maharashtra at 11.30 pm on June 10.

On Monday the State experienced gusty winds with speeds of 35 to 40kmph. It has advised fisher-folk in Lakshadweep, Kerala and Karnataka for not venturing into the sea till 13 June.

According to an IMD advisory, the "Wind speed is very likely to increase further becoming gale wind speed reaching 90-100 kmph gusting to 115 kmph over east-central & adjoining northeast Arabian Sea. The government is also monitoring the situation along with the MeT department and ISRO".
