Cyclone expected to approach here Sunday, lose intensity.
According to the 6th cyclone warning of the Pakistan Met Department (PMD) issued here Thursday, the cyclone is likely to hit Oman's coastal area in next six hours and expected to remain stationary there for 24 hours.
It further said the cyclone might start re-curving towards Pakistan's coastal areas and lose some of its intensity during the process. It would turn into a moderate intensity tropical cyclone with maximum sustained wind of about 70-90 kilometres per hour with the associated storm surge of 3-5 metres.
Under the influence of this cyclone, fairly widespread rainfall accompanied by strong winds was likely in the coastal areas of Sindh and Balochistan between Saturday and Tuesday.
PMD's Tropical Cyclone Warning Centre has warned the fishermen of Sindh and Balochistan in the open sea to return to the coast immediately.
