The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) reports that the potent cyclone Biparjoy is currently moving northeast over the eastern Arabian Sea. The cyclone is roughly 910 kilometers from Karachi, 890 kilometers from Thatta, and 990 kilometers from Ormara to the southeast.
The cyclone’s maximum sustained surface winds, according to PMD, are 120–130 km/h, with gusts as high as 150 km/h. The cyclone is intensifying as a result of favorable factors like warm sea surface temperatures, little vertical wind shear, and upper-level divergence.
The exact location of the cyclone’s landfall is still unknown. Others think it might hit the Indian Gujarat-Sindh coast. Some predict it will make landfall along the Makran-North Oman coast. For the next 18 to 24 hours, PMD anticipates the cyclone to continue moving north-northeast before recurving slightly north-northwest.
The Metropolitan Department is advising locals to take the necessary safety measures. A plan should be in place in case of power outages or flooding, as well as staying inside if at all possible, locking all windows and doors, securing loose outdoor objects, and closing all windows and doors. Additionally, it is advised that fishermen wait until the cyclone has passed before going out to sea.
