Gujarat on ‘high alert’ as Cyclonic storm Nisarga approaches. Nisarga is expected to make landfall on June 3 with winds of up to 100kmph (62.1mph). The exact path isn’t yet known, but western states like Gujarat and Maharashtra are expected to bear the brunt of the storm, including the possibility of an impact on Mumbai.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) said that a low-pressure area is likely to intensify into a cyclonic storm – called Nisarga – and cross North Maharashtra and South Gujarat coast on June 3. Red alert in Maharashtra and Gujarat as Cyclone Nisarga forms in the Arabian Sea. The storm will bring strong winds and heavy to very heavy rainfall to coastal regions.

“Nisarga is a severe cyclone & we’re expecting a wind speed of 90-100 kmph which I think is negotiable. Still, as a precautionary measure, we are going to start the evacuation of people from the coastal areas of the 2 states soon”. SN Pradhan, DG of National Disaster Response Force.

 Nisarga cyclone, which will turn into a ‘Deep Depression’ by Monday night and further into a ‘Cyclonic Storm’ thereafter, currently lies over the Arabian Sea close to Goa, Mumbai, and Surat. According to the location by IMD, the cyclonic storm lies about 360 km southwest of Panjim in Goa, 670 km south-southwest of Mumbai in Maharashtra and 900 km south-southwest of Surat in Gujarat. Nisarga is expected to intensify into a ‘Deep Depression’ during next 12 hours, into a ‘Cyclonic Storm’ over the Arabian Sea during the subsequent 24 hours and ‘Severe Cyclonic Storm’ thereafter.
