Is cyclone threat finally over for Karachi, Balochistan coastline?
*KARACHI - The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has cleared Pakistani coastline from the danger of tropical cyclone generated in Arabian Sea.*
*PMD on Tuesday informed that Pakistan’s coastline is out of the danger posed by tropical cyclone Luban, that was formed in the Arabian Sea off Oman.*
Further, the weather department notified of the high chances that the tropical cyclone will hit the coasts of Yemen and Oman in the next two days.
Pasni, Gwadar, Ormara and Karachi are safe from the tropical cyclone, it added.
“There will be no storm surge, strong winds or heavy rainfall on Pakistan’s coastal areas,” the Met department said, adding, the only effect of Luban cyclone will be experienced in the form of an overcast sky.
Luban, that started forming last week, has intensified into a cyclonic storm by now, as per weather reports.
A day earlier, the India Meteorological Department said the storm was some 1,040 kilometers (645 miles) east-southeast of Salalah, Oman, moving around 20 kph (12.5 mph).
