Fishermen have been advised not to go into deep sea

PANJIM: The cyclones ‘Luban’ and ‘Titli’, which have intensified in the Arabian sea and Bay of Bengal, respectively, will have no major direct impact on Goa coast; though the State may witness thundershowers and lightening. 

The fishermen are advised not to venture into deep sea areas of southeast and Lakshadweep area during next 24 hours and into southwest, west central and east central of Arabian Sea till October 12. 

Cyclone Luban, developed earlier this week, become a severe cyclone in the West-Central Arabian Sea on Tuesday while the Bay of Bengal produced its own cyclone, named ‘Titli’, in its West-Central basin. Both have intensified. 

While ‘Luban’ is now approaching the Yemen and South Oman coasts for a landfall over the next four days, ‘Titli’ will hit Odisha by Thursday. Speaking to HERALD, Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), Goa observatory director M L Sahu said both the cyclones will have no direct major impact on Goa coast as they are far away from the coast. “However, indirect impact in form of thundershowers, lightening and rise in sea water may be witnessed for next few days,” he said. 

“For last three-four days, we are already getting thunderstorms and rains as result of Luban cyclone,” Sahu stated.  Sahu said that since the Luban development is in the east central and west central of Arabian sea, fishermen are warned from venturing into deep sea. He said that squally wind speed reaching 40-50 kmph gusting to 60 kmph is very likely over Lakshadweep and Southeast Arabian Sea during next 24 hours and over Eastcentral Arabian Sea during next 48 hours.
