Cyclonic Storm Luban continues to threat Oman and Yemen Coast

October 13, 2018 2:37 PM |


The Cyclonic Storm ‘LUBAN’ over West central Arabian Sea moved west wards during the past 6 hours and centered over West central Arabian Sea, near latitude 14.8°N and longitude 56.0°E, about 320 km southeast of Salalah (Oman), 330 km northeast of Socotra Islands (Yemen), 440 km east-southeast of Al-Ghaidah (Yemen) and 720 km east-northeast of Riyan (Mukalla).

Further also, it is very likely to move west-northwestwards and cross Yemen Coast between Riyan (Mukalla) and Al-Ghaidah (Yemen), close to 15°N during noon/afternoon of October 14, 2018 as a severe cyclonic storm.

Therefore, we expect, Gale wind speed reaching 70-80 kmph gusting to 90 to prevail over West central Arabian Sea around the systems center. Gale wind speed reaching 90-100 kmph gusting to 120 are very likely along & off Yemen & adjoining South Oman Coast at the time of landfall.

In fact, the sea conditions will be dangerous over West central Arabian Sea off South Oman and Yemen Coast and also over Gulf of Aden till October 14 evening and will improve rapidly thereafter.

The fishermen are advised not to venture into West central Arabian Sea off South Oman and Yemen coast and over Gulf of Aden till October 14.
