Cyclone Vayu Live Updates: Just a month after Cyclone Fani killed at least 60 people along the country’s eastern coast,

another heavy storm, called Cyclone Vayu, is set to make landfall in the

state of Gujarat in the next 24 hours.

For instance The state government has chalked out an initial plan to evacuate about 3 lakh

people from the coastal areas.

But, The India Meteorological Department said Cyclone Vayu would emerge from the

Arabian Sea and enter India from Gujarat with gust speeds of nearly 135 kmph.

The department has said Cyclone Vayu could draw rain clouds from over the sea,

thereby causing a significant delay in the arrival of monsoon in some parts of the country.

Therefore, “It is very likely to move nearly northward and cross the Gujarat coast between Porbandar and Mahuva around Veraval and Diu region as a severe cyclonic storm with wind speed 110-120 kilometres per hour gusting to 135 kilometres per hour during the early morning of June 13,” it said.

Gujarat govt on high alert

The Gujarat government, which is on high alert, deployed National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) personnel in the coastal areas of Saurashtra and Kutch on Tuesday. It has also advised fishermen against venturing into the sea in the next few days, while ports have been directed to flag a danger signal. “Storm surge of height of about 1-1.5 metres above the astronomical tides likely to inundate the low-lying coastal areas of Kutch, Devbhoomi Dwarka, Porbandar, Junagarh, Diu, Gir Somnath, Amreli and Bhavnagar districts at the time of landfall,” the weather office said in the bulletin.
