Cyclone Biparjoy  continues to gather strength, posing an increasing threat to the region. Forecasters predict that the cyclone is expected to make landfall next Thursday, moving towards Pakistan through the Saurashtra and Kutch coast. With its intensity anticipated to be quite high, Islamabad is taking necessary precautions to handle the approaching calamity. Already, approximately 60,000 individuals have evacuated their homes in coastal areas and sought refuge in safer locations.

Rated as a category-3 cyclone, ‘Biparjoy’ is considered very strong and is projected to unleash wind speeds of 140 to 150 km per hour, with the potential for maximum speeds of up to 170 km per hour, as stated by the Meteorological Department. The coastal districts of Thatta in Pakistan and Gujarat in India are expected to bear the brunt of the disaster.

In Pakistan, areas such as Thatta, Badin, Sajawal, Tharparkar, Karachi, Mirpurkhas, Umerkot, Hyderabad, and Ormara are likely to be the most affected. The Chief Minister of Sindh has reported that 71 markets across seven taluks in three provinces are at risk. As of Tuesday, approximately 57,000 residents have been successfully evacuated to secure shelters, while others have left their homes out of fear.

Pakistan’s Environment Minister, Sherry Rahman, has assured the public that the government is closely monitoring the situation in collaboration with the administrations of Sindh and Baluchistan, demonstrating readiness to tackle any adversity.

It is important to note that India will also experience the impact of the cyclone, with Gujarat expected to bear the brunt of the damage. The administration is deeply concerned in light of the weather department’s warning. Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a meeting on Monday and discussed the situation with the Chief Minister of Gujarat. Evacuations are underway in Pakistan’s coastal areas, including Gujarat and Mumbai, ensuring the safety of residents in war-torn regions.

As the cyclone’s strength grows, both Pakistan and India are taking swift action to minimize the potential risks and protect their communities from the impending disaster.
