According to the forecast of the MMS, the moderate tropical storm was moving slowly in a general easterly direction and was likely to recurve towards the south, and then towards the south-south-west. On this trajectory, Eleanor would approach the region and would represent a potential threat to Mauritius.

In a statement following the meeting, Mr Budhoo highlighted that the NCC reviewed preparedness measures being implemented in response to the moderate tropical storm Eleanor, as well as additional mitigative measures by stakeholders to address the evolving on-ground situation.
