Cyclone Tauktae was over east-central and southeast Arabian Sea on Saturday morning.


Cyclone Tauktae, which is developing over the Arabian Sea and is expected to intensify into a cyclonic storm, bringing strong winds and heavy rainfall over Mumbai and other parts of coastal Maharashtra and Gujarat, has also affected domestic flights.

Cyclone Tauktae was over east-central and southeast Arabian Sea on Saturday morning, according to the India Meteorological Department. “It is very likely to intensify further into a severe cyclonic storm during the next 12 hours and into a very severe cyclonic storm during the subsequent 12 hours,” warned the IMD. “It is very likely to move north-northwestwards and cross Gujarat coast between Porbandar and Naliya.”
