Cyclone Biparjoy slowed down, won’t make landfall before nightfall in Pakistan
According to a Pakistani minister, Cyclone Biparjoy has slowed down and is not expected to make landfall before nightfall in Pakistan. The minister, Shahzad Akbar, said that the cyclone is now moving at a speed of 10 kilometers per hour, down from 20 kilometers per hour earlier. He added that the cyclone is expected to make landfall near the town of Thatta, Sindh province, at around 8pm local time. Cyclone Biparjoy slowed down, won’t make landfall before nightfall in Pakistan.
The cyclone has already caused widespread damage in India, where it has killed at least 10 people and displaced thousands more. In Pakistan, officials have evacuated more than 100,000 people from coastal areas in anticipation of the cyclone.
Akbar said that the government is prepared to deal with any damage caused by the cyclone. He said that the army, navy, and civil defense agencies are on standby to provide assistance.
The cyclone is the latest in a series of extreme weather events that have hit Pakistan in recent months. In March, a heat wave killed at least 65 people. In April, a series of floods killed at least 100 people and displaced thousands more.
Experts say that climate change is making extreme weather events more frequent and more severe. They say that Pakistan is particularly vulnerable to climate change because it is located in a region that is prone to cyclones, floods, and droughts.
The government of Pakistan has pledged to take steps to address climate change. However, experts say that more needs to be done to help Pakistan adapt to the changing climate. Cyclone Biparjoy slowed down, won’t make landfall before nightfall in Pakistan.
