New Delhi/ Mumbai : A deep depression over east-central Arabian Sea, which intensified into cyclone Nisarga on Tuesday noon, is expected to make landfall as a severe cyclonic storm with a wind speed of 100 to 110 kmph gusting to 120 kmph near Alibaug (94 km from Mumbai) in Raigad district on June 3, the India Metereological Department (IMD) said on Tuesday.

As of Tuesday noon, cyclone Nisarga was 280 km west-southwest of Goa, 490 km south-southwest of Mumbai and 710 km south-southwest of Surat. IMD said that the cyclone was likely to cross north Maharashtra and adjoining south Gujarat coast between Daman and Harihareshwar in Raigad on Wednesday afternoon.

The western coastline from Konkan’s Sindhudurg and Ratnagiri to Saurashtra’s Bhavnagar and other districts of Gujarat including Surat and Bharuch have received wind warnings ranging from 55-65 kmph (gusting to 75kmph) and increasing to speeds of 115-120kmph in four Maharashtra districts of Palghar, Mumbai, Thane and Raigad.
