KARACHI: The Nilofar cyclone on Tuesday intensified as it reached at 1100 kilometer distance from Karachi. A ban has been placed on visiting sea sights and fishing until November 2nd.
The Nilofar cyclone emerged on October 25th as result of low air pressure in the Arabian Sea which intensified on October 26th and 27th.
Cyclone intensified at the speed of 160-185 kilometer per hour on Wednesday which triggered warning and further safety measures.
Nilofar’s intensity is being anticipated to reach 175 to 200 kilometer per hour on October 29.
It was reported that the cyclone is also turning towards Oman triggering an alert for Pakistan and India as well. All three countries have issued red alerts to brace for the Nilofar.
The reports say that the Nilofar cyclone will turn to Karachi and coastal areas of Balochistan on October 30th when its intensity will reportedly be reduced to 120 to 145 kilometers per hour.
The cyclone will turn to Indian state Gujraat after hitting Pakistan’s coastal belt with a further reduced intensity of 35 to 55 kilometers per hour.
Nilofar will die into the deep ocean by November 2nd after losing its intensity.
