IMD: Cyclone Vayu changes course, may not strike Gujarat

Cyclone Vayu

As per the India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Thursday, Cyclone Vayu has changed its trajectory and is unlikely to hit Gujarat’s coast where it was earlier predicted to make landfall.

“It (Cyclone Vayu) may not make landfall. It will only skirt the coast. It has made a small deviation. But, its effect will be there with strong winds and heavy rain,” Secretary at the Ministry of Earth Sciences M Rajeevan told PTI.

IMD Additional Director General Devendra Pradhan said that perhaps the cyclone will remain on the seaside and move parallel to the coast.

However, the coast is still on high alert for the next two days as the weather conditions will be rough. The IMD has advised everyone to stay indoors and fishermen not to venture out towards the sea.
