Cyclone Burevi to hit shores tonight: TN and Kerala take all steps to mitigate its effects

The Cyclonic Storm ‘Burevi ’ is set to hit the shores tonight in southern Tamil Nadu between Pamban and Kanyakumari tonight. The latest weather bulletin by the India Meteorology Department says, its landfall would be completed by early morning tomorrow.

Earlier, the cyclone had its first landfall near Trincomalee in Sri Lanka late last night. The MET Department says, it was found moving north westwards with the speed of 16 km an hour for the past six hours. Currently, it lays centred very close to Pamban near Rameswaram, at about  40 km east-southeast of Pamban and 230 km east-northeast of Kanyakumari. Heavy to very heavy rain is forecast at many places in the southern districts of Tamil Nadu today, with the possibility of extremely very heavy rain at isolated places.  The MET Department has said the cyclone will gain the wind speed of 70-80 km per hour, gusting to 90 km per hour, while having its landfall.  As the sea remains very rough, all fishing operations in the region remain suspended. Under the impact of the cyclonic storm, several places in the Delta districts and southern Tamil Nadu witnessed intermittent rain since last night. Some places including Chennai experienced light to moderate rain.

Our Chennai correspondent Jaya Singh reports that as the southern districts of Tamil Nadu are bracing for the Cyclone Burevi, the state Government says it has taken all out efforts to mitigate its effects. The weather officials say the Cyclone has not strengthened further, leading the civil administrations to gain more comfort in facing its fallout. The cyclone has triggered rain in Chennai and its suburbs as well, leading to copious inflow of water to the Chembarambakkam Lake, the largest water body among those catering to the needs of the metropolis. As its full reservoir level has been reached, excess water of more than a thousand cusecs is being let off into the River Adyar. 432 locations in the southern districts have been identified as vulnerable to flooding during the cyclone where special attention is being given by the authorities. The state revenue minister RB Udhayakumar told reporters in Thoothukudi, 490 relief camps have been established to accommodate possible evacuees.
