Cyclone Vayu: Gujarat safe as the cyclone diverted towards Oman

Last month the extremely severe Cyclone Fani had hit the state of Odisha.

In what comes as a relief to Gujarat, the Cyclone Vayu has now diverted its route towards Oman. Private meteorological company Skymet has reported that the Very Severe Cyclone Vayu may not hit Gujarat and may just drift away from the Saurashtra coast. According to Skymet, there are fair chances that the cyclone may just skirt the Gujarat coast near Porbandar, close to Dwarka or Okha coast.

The very severe cyclone Vayu which is currently category 2 storm is likely to weaken into a category 1 storm however, heavy winds may continue to cause damage. At present, cyclone Vayu is centred around 260 west of Mumbai and 320 km south of Porbandar and the periphery of the system is already reaching Gujarat coast.

Earlier visuals from Gujarat showed how the sea had turned rough ahead of the landfall of Cyclone Vayu.

As per the IMD, while the eye of the cyclone may or may not hit Gujarat, the system will hit along the coast of Porbandar. Hence, the heavy rains, thunderstorms and wind continue to remain threat factors. The IMD has adviced not to relax the preparedness.

Last month the extremely severe Cyclone Fani had hit the state of Odisha. The UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (ODRR) has praised India for achieving a minimal loss of life from Cyclone Fani.
