Class II Cyclone Warning Remains In Force In Mauritius, Economic Activities Resume This Morning

Must Read

Employees in the public and private sectors can go to work as the Class 2 warning remains in force.

Latest observations indicate that the marked low pressure did not develop further. On the other hand, it changed its trajectory towards the west southwest passing at about 40 km to the north of Mauritius at around 0330 hours. The associated cloud system which was located to the northwest of the centre of the low pressure is moving away from our region.

At 0400 hours, the low pressure was located  near 19.9 degrees south and 57.3 degrees east. It is now moving in  a general west-south-westerly direction at a mean speed of 13 km/h.

Some numerical model are still indicating that there is a low probability that the system may still move towards the south and the associated clouds system may approach Mauritius later during the day. However, the situation is being closely monitored.

A cyclone warning class II is in force in Mauritius.

The public in Mauritius is advised to complete all precautions
