Índia e Paquistão enfrentam ciclone

By Jordi Bou

June 13, 2023 - As autoridades do Paquistão e do estado indiano de Gujarat estão a
evacuar milhares de pessoas das áreas costeiras, já que se espera que
o ciclone Biparjoy seja o mais violento a atingir a região desde 2021.

Classified as a very severe cyclonic storm, Biparjoy is expected to land around Thursday evening between Mandvi in India's Gujarat province and Karachi in southern Pakistan.

Meteorologists predict maximum sustained wind speeds of 125-135km per hour, gusting to 150km per hour.

Government officials in Gujarat told Press Trust of India news agency that one woman was killed and her husband injured after strong winds caused a tree to fall on their motorcycle.

In Mumbai, in the neighboring state of Maharasthra, four boys were washed away by high tide off Juhu Beach on Monday evening.
