Biparjoy to Hit Gujarat as ‘Very Severe’ Cyclone

The name “Biparjoy” for cyclone was suggested by Bangladesh and means “disaster” or “calamity” in Bengali. In accordance with some preexisting rules, cyclone names are assigned on a rotating basis.

Biparjoy Cyclone is very likely to move nearly northward until June 14 morning, then move north-northeastwards and cross Saurashtra and Kutch and adjacent Pakistan coasts between Mandvi in Gujarat and Karachi near Jakhau port by noon of June 15 as a very severe cyclonic storm with a maximum sustained windspeed of 125-135 kmph gusting to 150 kmph.” stated IMD.

However, the extremely dangerous cyclone that is forming in the Arabian Sea is predicted to weaken somewhat and be downgraded to a “very severe cyclonic storm” by the time it makes landfall in Gujarat.

Gujarat will experience thunderstorms and strong winds from the cyclone, which is expected to pass between 200 and 300 km from the Porbandar coast. According to the weather office, Saurashtra and Kutch will likely experience heavy to very heavy rain on June 14 and extremely heavy rain on June 15. This will also lead to a fall in temperature by 4-6 degrees Celsius in Gujarat.
