Tropical Cyclone Biparjoy is slow-moving storm, expected to make landfall along the Pakistan-India border later this week.
The storm made landfall in the state of Gujarat, in Western India and near Pakistan on June 16. Flooding is the most significant risk for the country as the storm moves inland. India has already seen heavy rainfall before Biparjoy made landfall, but the storm could bring upwards of 20 inches of rain. The prior wind, rainfall and flooding has already contributed to seven deaths in the country. Two more deaths were reported Friday morning after Biparjoy made landfall.
In Pakistan, the winds are threatening dust storms and severe thunderstorms in the Sindh, a southern providence.
‘Biparjoy’ translates into ‘disaster’ or ‘calamity’ from Bengali, and the storm caused 180,000 people to have to evacuate their homes.
Heavy rainfall continued to hammer the region as the storm progressed through India and Pakistan. Tidal waves of around 7-10 feet in the Adriatic Sea were forecasted, and 100,000 people were evacuated in Gujarat, India.
An additional 82,000 people were evacuated in Pakistan. Power supply in both countries was impacted due to downed trees and moderate rain.
