Cyclonic storm: MeT issues ‘heavy rain’ alert in Gujarat

Cyclonic storm: MeT issues ‘heavy rain’ alert in Gujarat”

No. 2 signal has been put on every port of Gujarat.

"A heavy rain warning has been issued for Saurashtra and Kutch on June 13 and 14 due to the depression in the Arabian Sea which will turn into a severe cyclonic storm", State meteorological department director Jayanta Sarkar told reporters.

Cyclonic storm Vayu is continuing to intensify as it tracks over the Arabian Sea and targets Gujarat, a state on the western coast of India that has a population of over 60 million people, which is twice the number of people that live in Canada.

The wind speeds will also increase over the next three days.

Indian Coast Guard, Navy, Army, and Air Force units have been put on standby and surveillance aircraft and helicopters are carrying out aerial surveillance.

The IMD stated that the severe cyclonic storm can cause heavy rains and winds in the coastal districts of Saurashtra, like Bhavnagar, Amreli, Junagadh, Jamangar, Porbandar, Dwarka and Kutch.

After the weather warning, the government convened a high-level meeting in which it made a decision to deploy 15 teams of the NDRF (National Disaster Response Force) immediately. The State authorities have swung into action, ordering closure of schools for three days in coastal districts and deploying teams of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and asking fishermen to return to the coast from high seas. It will slightly intensify and lay centred over East Central Arabian Sea about 630 km almost south of Veraval (Gujarat). It is likely to strengthen into a severe cyclonic storm by June 12.

Gujarat is at present reeling under severe heat wave as the maximum temperature in major cities, including Ahmedabad, has been over 43 degrees Celsius since the last week of May.

"It is very likely to be 65-75 kmph gusting to 75 kmph over Gujarat coast; and 50-60 kmph gusting to 70 kmph over north Maharashtra Coasts & northern parts of eastcentral Arabian Sea", the IMD added. But as it got late to arrive in Kerala this year, it is expected to be delayed by a week in Gujarat.
