Cyclone Biparjoy live updates: Storm weakens as it gets closer to Pakistan, India

Tropical cyclone Biparjoy weakened into a Very Severe Cyclonic Storm (VSCS) from an Extremely Severe Cyclonic Storm (ESCS) while moving further north-northwestward during the last 6 hours, as it inched closer to the coast of Pakistan and India.

As per the latest forecast, the cyclone is likely to move nearly northwards till tomorrow morning (June 14) and then recurve north-northeastwards and cross Keti Bandar (southeast Sindh) adjoining Indian coasts between Karachi and Gujarat, India, by the evening of June 15 as a VSCS.

Biparjoy is currently located near latitude 20.6°N and longitude 67.0°E, about 300 km west-southwest of Porbandar, 290 km southwest of Devbhumi Dwarka, 340km south-southwest of Jakhau Port, 350km south-southwest of Naliya and 470km south of Karachi.

The authorities in the coastal areas of both countries have been advised to stay on high alert. Efforts to evacuate thousands of residents are underway as the cyclone inches closer.

Fishermen are advised not to venture into the open sea till the system is over by 17 June, as the sea level has started to rise along the coastal belt and the Arabian Sea conditions may get very rough/high.
