Cyclone ‘Burevi’ is expected to move west-northwestwards and cross north-eastern coast of Sri Lanka between Trincomalee and Point-Pedro, close to Mullaithivu around tonight (within 7.00 p.m-10.00 p.m on today), Department of Meteorology warned.

The Bay of Bengal now has a second cyclone named ‘Burevi’ as Tuesday’s deep depression underwent intensification late into the night, and was, at 2.30 am this (Wednesday) morning, located about 300 km East-South-East of Trincomalee.

The slow-moving ‘Burevi’ may not weaken on landfall over Sri Lanka and in fact retain cyclone status for the next four days during when it would emerge into the Gulf of Mannar and adjoining Comorin (by Thursday morning) and will complete a second one over South Tamil Nadu coast between Kannyakumari and Pamban on early Friday.

Meanwhile, the Sri Lankan Meteorological Department said ‘Burevi’ would cross the island’s East Coast between Batticaloa and Point-Pedro, close to Trincomalee around this (Wednesday) evening/night with wind speeds of 75-85 km/hr gusting up to 95 km/hr and later emerge into the Gulf of Mannar. Intermittent showers/thundershowers will occur in the Eastern, Northern, Northern-Central, North-Western, Central, and Sabaragamuwa provinces. Very heavy rainfall above 20 cm can be expected at some places. Showers or thundershowers at times will occur elsewhere. Heavy rainfall above 10 cm can be expected at some other places. Very strong gusty winds (80-90 km/hr) can be expected in these provinces.

The IMD has forecast heavy to very heavy rainfall with isolated extremely heavy falls over the Kannyakumari, Tirunelveli, Thoothukudi, Tenkasi, Ramanathapuram and Sivagangai districts in South Tamil Nadu on Wednesday and Thursday; and over Thiruvananthapuram, Kollam, Pathanamthitta and Alappuzha districts in South Kerala on Thursday. It would be isolated heavy to very heavy over South Tamil Nadu on Wednesday and Friday and over South Kerala, on Thursday and Friday.
