Tropical cyclone Nanauk emerged in Arabian Sea

Jun 12, 2014 12:21 IST

Tropical cyclone Nanauk emerged in east-central Arabian Sea on 11 June 2014. This was declared by the India Met Department and the cyclone is likely to affect the southwest monsoon.

It is at present centered over east-central and adjoining west-central Arabian Sea near latitude 18.0 North and longitude 65.0 East, about 830 km west-southwest of Mumbai, 650 km southwest of Veraval and 700 km east-southeast of Masirah Island (Oman).

Although, at present the cyclone is moving at the speed of 12 km per hour towards Oman away from India's west coast. However, it will pick up in intensity and the landfall is expected around 15 June 2014.

If the cyclone maintains its current direction away from India, it will have an adverse affect on the monsoon but if it changes its direction and moves towards the Maharashtra and Gujarat coast, then these areas would receive heavy to very heavy rainfall.
