No Threat to Pakistan Coast from Cyclone Maha: Met Office

KARACHI: The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) on Friday said cyclonic storm ‘Maha’ is far away from Pakistan and poses no threat to its coast.

According to Met Office, Cyclonic storm Maha has moved north-north westwards during the last 12 hours and is likely to track north-westwards and intensify more as a severe cyclonic storm during the next 24 hours.

The department’s spokesperson said that Maha was 1,400km away from Karachi’s coast on Thursday night, surrounded by winds having a speed between 63km per hour and 87km per hour.

PMD Chief Sardar Sarfaraz said: “Currently there is no threat to any coastal area of Pakistan from this cyclone.”

The Tropical Cyclone Warning Center of PMD is regularly monitoring the intensity and track of this Tropical Cyclone.

On the other hand, Cyclone Kyaar is currently moving parallel to Oman and Yemen. It’s likely to weaken into a depression by tomorrow and gradually dissipate over waters off the coast of Somalia.
