Gujarat Cyclone Warning

It is very likely to intensify further into a Severe Cyclonic Storm tonight.

The Cyclonic Storm "VAYU" over East Central Arabian Sea moved north-northwestwards with a speed of about nine kilometres per hour in last six hours.

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.

State meteorological centre director Dr Jayanta Sarkar said the cyclonic storm is very likely to move northwards and cross the Gujarat coast between Porbandar and Mahuva, that is near Veraval, as a severe cyclonic storm with wind speed of around 120 kmph.

The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) has prepared almost 40 teams with boating equipment and tree-cutters, and the Indian Coast Guard, Navy, and Air Force units have been put on standby.

The government will also put the Army, the Navy and the Coast Guard on alert.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a warning of heavy rains and high winds at a speed of over 110 kilometres on June 13 and 14 in coastal areas of Saurashtra and Kutch. Additional Chief Secretary Shri Pankaj Kumar told AIR that administration is fully prepared to meet any situation.

A distant warning number 2 (DW-2) signal has been hoisted at the major ports of Gujarat to alert locals as well as fishermen, Sarkar said. It will slightly intensify and lay centred over East Central Arabian Sea about 630 km almost south of Veraval (Gujarat).

The storm is set to make landfall in the early morning of June 13 and approximately 300,000 people in low-lying areas are set to be evacuated in Gujarat.

The setting of monsoon will be further delayed over Gujarat after the cyclonic storm, he said.

The government has postponed the State-wide school enrolment drive scheduled for June 13-14 during which all Ministers, legislators and top bureaucrats would visit schools in their areas to enrol children. But as it got late to arrive in Kerala this year, it is expected to be delayed by a week in Gujarat.
