Severe rainfall warning as cyclone develops in Arabian Sea

Delhi Temperature To Dip In Coming Days Cyclone Vayu To Have Some Impact

The department has warned fishermen against venturing into sea as the cyclonic storm is getting intensified.

A deep depression formed over the Arabian Sea on Monday afternoon is likely to bring heavy to very heavy rain in parts of Kerala, coastal and south interior Karnataka, Konkan region, Goa and the Lakshadweep islands on June 13 morning, the India Meteorological Department said Tuesday.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a warning of heavy rains with winds blowing at the speed of over 110 kms on June 13 and 14 in coastal areas of Saurashtra and Kutch.

With the warning of a heavy rainfall in parts of Gujarat, the state government has made a decision to deploy NDRF personnel in coastal areas of Saurashtra and Kutch from Tuesday morning.

IMD said that Vayu was positioned 630 kilometres south-southwest of Mumbai at 11.30 pm on Monday night and was moving in a northwards direction.

The seas are bound to be rough in Kerala, Karnataka and Lakshadweep coasts during the day given the predicted wind speed of 40-60 kmph.

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 government also advised people to keep essential items, including drinking water, medicines and charged batteries, in stock and stay away from the sea. It is likely to cross the Gujarat coast early morning on June 13, the IMD added. The storm is also expected to pack winds up to 135 kilometres per hour on Thursday. Public Storm Warning Signals are raised to warn the public of incoming weather disturbances.

Jamnagar, Somnath, Porbander, Dwarka and Nailiya in Kutch are likely to be impacted the most, and could even herald pre-monsoons rain across Gujarat. "Thunderstorm and lightning accompanied with gusty wind (40-50kmph) is very likely at isolated places in Banaskantha and Sabarkantha of North Gujarat region on June 13", said IMD's forecast.

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.
