Severe Cyclone Biparjoy Approaches: Coastal Regions Brace for Impact, Karachi and Gujarat Implement Section 144

In a concerning weather development, a severe cyclone named ‘Biparjoy’ is currently making its way in the north-northeast (NNE) direction over the Arabian Sea. At present, Cyclone Biparjoy is located approximately 846 kilometers south of Karachi, Pakistan. Over the past six hours, the cyclone has been moving at a speed of 9 kilometers per hour (5 knots) in a northward trajectory.

Weather authorities and experts are closely monitoring the movement of Cyclone Biparjoy, as its path and intensity have the potential to impact the coastal regions of Pakistan and India significantly.

While there is some uncertainty in the forecasts, indications suggest that the cyclone might pose a threat to southern Pakistan and Gujarat, India in the coming week. However, there is also a slight possibility of the cyclone veering towards Oman.

As a precautionary measure, the authorities have announced the imposition of Section 144 in Karachi, Pakistan. This means that certain activities, including picnics and fishing, have been restricted to ensure the safety and well-being of the public. The move aims to prevent any mishaps or accidents that may occur due to the cyclone’s approaching impact.

Additionally, residents and authorities in the coastal areas of Baluchistan and Sindh are advised to remain vigilant as high tides are expected from June 13 to June 16. These high tides, likely influenced by Cyclone Biparjoy, could lead to coastal flooding and other associated hazards. People living in these regions are urged to follow the instructions and guidelines issued by local authorities to safeguard themselves and their properties.

The meteorological departments of both Pakistan and India are actively monitoring the progress of Cyclone Biparjoy and updating the public on any changes in its trajectory or intensity. Residents in the potentially affected areas are encouraged to stay informed through official channels, heed evacuation orders if issued, and take necessary precautions to minimize the potential impact of the cyclone.

Authorities, emergency services, and disaster management agencies are on high alert and prepared to respond swiftly in the event of any adverse weather conditions or emergencies caused by Cyclone Biparjoy.
