After Hudhud that hit the eastern coast this month, cyclonic storm Nilofar is to hit the Kutchh region in the next four days. Its impact is likely to be felt mid-week in Kutch and on the adjoining Pakistan coast. The new Nilofar cyclonic storm, however, will not be as intense as Hudhud but is expected to bring heavy rains in coastal Saurashtra and Kutch.
Nilofar will intensify into a severe cyclonic storm in the next 24 hours and fishermen have been advised to return to the coast as the conditions get rough. It will turn into a "very severe" cyclonic storm on Tuesday by touching the peak wind speed of 145 kmph.
