Mumbai, 7th May, 2023: A cyclonic storm “Biporjoy” has developed over the east-central and adjoining southeast Arabian Sea, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD). This is the first cyclone to form in June since 2020.
Although it is unlikely to have a significant influence on India’s west coast, experts on climate change warned that by removing moisture, it could postpone the arrival of the monsoon over Kerala, which usually arrives by June 1st. The Kerala monsoon’s anticipated arrival date was not provided by the forecast agency, nevertheless.
By Thursday, it is anticipated to have intensified into a very severe cyclonic storm. According to leading climate experts, Biparjoy is unlikely to seriously harm the Indian coast.
Gujarat is being threatened by Cyclone Biparjoy. But the good news is that this storm will not make landfall in the Gulf of Gujarat. Pakistan will be struck by Cyclone Biparjoy. The storm will hit Pakistan on June 12 after passing through Gujarat on June 10.
Gujarat would still be affected by the cyclone even though it didn’t directly reach the state. Gujarat can expect rain from the storm, and the Saurashtra region of North Gujarat will noticeably alter the atmosphere.
On June 6, along and off the coastlines of Kerala, Karnataka, the Lakshadweep and Maldives, and the Konkan, Goa, and Maharashtra coasts from June 8 to June 10, sea conditions are predicted to be very high. Fishermen at sea have been urged to head back to land.
The name “Biparjoy” was given by Bangladesh and means ‘calamity’ or ‘disaster’. It is imperative for Gujarati citizens and government officials to maintain vigilance and readiness for any potential cyclonic system-related effects.
