A Cyclone Warning Class II Is In Force In Mauritius

Must Read

Fourth cyclone bulletin for Mauritius issued at 0410 hours on Tuesday 01 February 2022.

Latest observations indicate that tropical cyclone Batsirai has slowed down and continues to move towards the west-south-west. The estimated central pressure of the tropical cyclone is around 965 hPa and the estimated wind gust near the centre is around 200 km/h.

At 0400 hours this morning, tropical cyclone Batsirai was centred at about 600 km to the north-east of Mauritius, in latitude 16.3 degrees South and longitude 62.3 degrees East.  It is moving in a west-south-westerly direction at about 10 km/h.

On this trajectory, tropical cyclone Batsirai is approaching Mauritius and represents a potential threat to the island. There is a risk of further recurvature of the trajectory towards the south-west which will bring the centre closer to the Mascarene Islands.

The public in Mauritius is advised to complete all preliminary precautions.

The weather will be partly cloudy to cloudy with passing showers mainly to the east, the south and the central plateau, more frequent in the afternoon.  A marked deterioration of the weather is expected by this evening.

Wind will blow from the south-east at a speed of about 45 km/h with gusts of the order of 90 km/h in exposed areas. The wind will strengthen further tonight to reach gusts of the order of 100 km/h.

The sea will be very rough with swells of 4 to 5 metres. The public is advised not to venture at sea.

The next bulletin will be issued at around 1010 hours.
