Cyclone Vayu to hit Gujarat; many districts on alert, schools closed

A storm of velocity up to 165 km/h is about to hit Gujarat. The Indian Army and NDRF have been deployed for emergency measures


- Advertisment -

Ahmedabad: Barely a month after the eastern coast of India faced Cyclone Fani, the western coastal States face Cyclone Vayu. Given the prediction that the cyclone wind can hit Gujarat’s coastal areas late in the night of 12 June or Thursday in the morning, the State and Centre have taken some necessary precautionary steps.

The storm about to hit Gujarat has an average speed in the range 140-150 km/h, but the wind can attain a velocity of 165 km/h. In order to avoid any untoward incident, the Indian Army and the NDRF have deployed their forces.

The Gujarat government has made a plan for the next 30 hours as Cyclone Vayu is all set to collide with the State’s Porbandar port and Mahuva of the Bhavnagar district near Veraval.

The highest impact of Cyclone Vayu will be felt in Veraval, Porbandar, Junagadh, Diu, Amreli, Bhavnagar, Dwarka and Kutch.

Twenty-six teams have been deployed for disaster management, along with 10 NDRF teams waiting for orders in Maharashtra.

The fishermen of Saurashtra and Kutch have been asked to not venture into the sea. The level of alert at the Porbandar seaport has been heightened from 1 to 2.

The Gujarat government has ordered all district administration officials not to go on leaves. In many areas, the order to close schools for two days has been issued. People who live in coastal areas are being evacuated.

Not only human but also animals are being rescued from the area before the fury of Cyclone Vayu hits them. At the Gir sanctuary, 13 lions have been tracked and taken to safer places.

Cyclone Fani in Odisha earlier had caused widespread devastation despite all precautionary measures although the coordination between the Centre and that State saved many lives.
