  1. has any area been flooded yet?

    Its very difficult to know how much rain has fallen because of the wind. My Rain guage shows only 10 mm. It could easily be 2 or 3 times more. Or maybe I am exaggerating

  2. It usually happens everytime.. Nisha din touch the headlines much bcos of mumbai terror attack… even laila had the same,.. jal was free 4m all but it dissipiation made a big headlines…and now thane under lokpal shear… Wat 2 do?

    • omg!!!! if it becomes true…then Chennai will be in water since almost all the lakes are at full capacity because of ne monsoon

  3. I see someone posted a link to my site here “westernpacificweather.com” thank you very much and also glad someone did cause now I see the reports and great information flowing here. If anyone wants to pass any pictures or videos to me I would love to use them in my next video update.

  5. THE CYCLONE LIES TO THE WEST OF AN
    UPPER-LEVEL ANTICYCLONE. THE UPPER-LEVEL ENVIRONMENT IS MARGINAL,
    WITH FAVORABLE BUT DECREASING RADIAL OUTFLOW AND INCREASING VERTICAL
    WIND SHEAR. THE CYCLONE IS ALSO MOVING OVER WATERS WITH LOWER HEAT
    CONTENT THAT SHOULD, ALONG WITH INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND
    DECREASING OUTFLOW, INDUCE SOME WEAKENING PRIOR TO LANDFALL

    JTWC still expecting landfall @ 11.8 N only

  6. sorry- the eye is back..still going W –in line with Pondy landfall..will it take a decisive turn towards Chennai?nailbiting next few hours!

  7. Affected Population

    Up to 3.58 million people can be affected by wind speeds of hurricane strength or above. In addition, 0.12 million people are living in coastal areas below 5m and can therefore be affected by storm surge.

  8. Latest JTWC:

    TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 06B (THANE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 135 NM
    SOUTHEAST OF CHENNAI, INDIA, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 06 KNOTS OVER
    THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY
    INDICATES THAT THE SYSTEM HAS INTENSIFIED FURTHER WITH A 15-NM EYE.
    A 290245Z SSMIS IMAGE DEPICTS TIGHTLY-CURVED BANDING WRAPPING INTO
    THE CENTER WITH THE BULK OF THE DEEP CONVECTION OVER THE WESTERN
    SEMI-CIRCLE DUE TO WEAK, EASTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR. THERE IS GOOD
    CONFIDENCE IN THE CURRENT POSITION BASED ON THE VISIBLE EYE. THE
    CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 77 TO 90
    KNOTS. TC 06B IS FORECAST TO TRACK WESTWARD, MAKING LANDFALL NEAR
    TAU 12, AND IS EXPECTED TO DISSIPATE OVER INDIA BY TAU 36. WITH THE
    EXCEPTION OF WBAR, MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN TIGHT AGREEMENT. MAXIMUM
    SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 290600Z IS 22 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT
    291500Z, 292100Z, 300300Z AND 300900Z.//

  9. Warning 15 from JTWC:THE SYSTEM HAS INTENSIFIED FURTHER WITH A 15-NM EYE..what does it mean?It maintains landfall at 11.7 N

    • Thane is moving in zigzag manner…so the prediction can’t be exactly…

      Now the location is 11.81 -81.80 as 14:00 IST

    • got it..i.e.so aan approx 35km stretch can get flattened from the centre of the eye when it crosses..the zest resort and the 15km their South and North

    System has moved NW, and lies 250 kms west of Chennai.Superimposed latest position on yesterday’s Map above.

    Expect more rains in Chennai as the storm moves NW, forecasted earlier by Vagaries.
    Currently at 2 pm (IST) Chennai is a pleasant 22c and overcast with light to medium rains. Winds have notched up to 30 kmph by afternoon.
    Very heavy rains and winds expected in Puducherry as the SW segment of the cyclone approaches the region

    Posted by Mr.Rajesh in his website

  11. The cyclone’s northern edge looks reddish….it will make a circular movement and directly hit the Chennai Area…..Chennai in for very heavy rains…all places here could notch up 10cm by 8.30Pm tonight itslef!!
