October 30, 2019
KARACHI (92 News) – Extremely Severe Cyclonic Storm (ESCS) over west-central Arabian Sea has diverted towards Gulf of Aden. According to the Pakistan Metrological Department, the storm tracked in west/northwest direction during last 12 hours and lay centered with maximum sustained surface winds of 160-180 kmph. It is now at about 790km southwest of Karachi, 645 km south of Gwadar and 365 km southeast of Masirah Island (Oman). There is no direct threat to Pakistan coast; however, due to exceptionally strong winds around the system's centre and roughness in sea, there is a risk of water inflow in low-lying islands at the time of high tides. Light/moderate rain-TS is expected at a few places in lower Sindh and along Makran Coast during Thursday-Friday. The PMD has advised fishermen not to venture in open sea till Oct 31.
