Maximum sustained surface winds are 120-130 km/hour with gusts of 150 Km/hour around the system centre. The favourable environmental conditions support the system to intensify further.

The system is predicted to keep tracking further north/northeastward during the next 18-24 hours and then slightly recurve to North-northwest. PMD’s cyclone warning center, Karachi is monitoring the system and will issue update accordingly.
Following the update, fishermen have been advised not to venture into the open sea from Monday, June 12 onwards till the system is over as the Arabian Sea conditions may get very rough/high accompanied by high tides along the coast.
Rain-thunderstorm with some heavy falls and ferocious winds are expected in the Sindh-Makran coast from Tuesday night to Wednesday morning. High-intensity winds may cause damage to loose and vulnerable structures.
