Orange Alert In Goa As Cyclone Vayu Likely To Bring Heavy Rains In Konkan

Cyclonic storm Vayu is intensifying in the Arabian Sea and will turn into a severe cyclonic storm that is likely to hit the Gujarat coast on Thursday.

D Sivananda Pai, head of the IMD's long-range forecasting said, "Progress of the monsoon seems unlikely till 15-16 June because the cyclone will drag moisture away".

Though the cyclone will not hit the Goa coast, its parallel trajectory is expected to bring heavy rains accompanied by gusty winds and thunderstorms.

Several coastal districts in the Saurashtra region were likely to witness heavy to very heavy rains, heralding pre-monsoon showers, according to MeT officials.

The IMD issued orange alert as it doesn't expect the cyclone to cause much damage. News agency PTI reported that the Gujarat government has already deployed personnel from the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) in coastal areas for relief and rescue efforts.

On Monday the State experienced gusty winds with speeds of 35 to 40kmph. "The fishermen are advised not to venture into northeast Arabian sea along and off Gujarat coast on June 12, 13 and 14". It is very likely to intensify further into a Severe Cyclonic Storm tonight.
