Cyclone Batsirai (intense)

Batsirai verander heelwat van posisie en sterkte.   Dit bly steeds sterker vorm aanneem.   Neem maar ekstra voorsorg vir die sikloon wat op pad is, veral die oostelike en suidkusgebiede.  Daar is ook vog wat uit die noorde inkom (vir ander dele van die land).

Weather: Moderate tropical storm BATSIRAI, now an intense tropical cyclone


Cyclone Batsirai has continued its westward track, now inching closer to the island of Rodrigues as of this update. Currently located 395km away from the island, Class I Warnings are in effect for there as Batsirai may continue to affect the region with strong gusts.

Cyclone Batsirai has intensified over the past several hours, and has now become a category 2 cyclone according to Meteo France, and the current forecast keeps Batsirai a cyclone-strength system over the next 5 days. There is no CDPS in place for Batsirai as Rodrigues is no longer within the cone of uncertainty, however, a CDPS stage will likely be put into place soon for Mauritius and La Reunion, with both the islands being within the cone of uncertainty.
