The National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) has put the authorities concerned on high alert as Cyclone Biparjoy is gaining strength and now turned into an Extremely Severe Cyclonic Storm (ESCS), likely to affect Sindh’s coastal areas on June 13 (Tuesday).

In its update on Sunday, the NDMA said the cyclone may intensify in the next 24 hours and is likely to affect the south and south-eastern parts of Sindh on Tuesday.

It said the cyclone can cause strong winds, torrential rains and floods in coastal areas of the province.
