Cyclone Sagar: IMD issues advisory to 5 states, Lakshadweep

The IMD department has already advised the fishermen to not venture into the Gulf of Aden, as the storm hits it in a day. The storm was a deep depression over the Gulf of Aden but intensified into a cyclone and moved westwards during the past six hours with a speed of 11 kilometres per hour (kmph).

Indian Metrological Department (IMD) has issued an advisory to five states and 1 Union Territory over Cyclone "Sagar".

Sagar has brought heavy rainfall to coastal areas in Yemen's Hadramawt and Mahra provinces and Socotra Island since forming in the Gulf of Aden on Wednesday and moving westward.

It is very likely to further intensify into a cyclonic storm during the next 12 hours. Strong winds reaching upto 75-85 kmph and 95 kmph covering the Gulf of Aden and adjoining south-western Arabian Sea area are very likely duting the next 12 hours. The storm is expected to move west through Thursday and then turn to the west-southwest, with rough seas and winds forecast to reach 70 kmph in the Gulf of Aden.

It will gain strength until the storm is in open water and continue for the next 12 hours.

"Possibility of "Sagar" making any significant impact along the Gujarat coast is very less".

The meteorological department has issued advisory asking fishermen not to enter deep sea in view of adverse weather conditions. Additional Chief Secretary, Revenue department, Pankaj Kumar, who is monitoring the situation, also said the storm would not affect Gujarat. "It is going further away from us", Mr Kumar said.
