Emirati astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi, currently aboard the International Space Station (ISS), has shared striking images of Cyclone Biparjoy as it approaches India and Pakistan.
Encouraging people in the storm’s path to prioritise their safety, Al Neyadi’s photographs highlight the severity of the weather system.
With Cyclone Biparjoy intensifying as it nears the Indian and Pakistani coasts, landfall is expected on Thursday.
Bangladesh named the cyclone, which means “destruction,” underscoring the potential impact of the storm.
The UAE’s National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) has reassured residents that the country will remain unaffected by the cyclone, as it has formed in the Arabian Sea.
In response to the approaching cyclone, authorities in India and Pakistan have initiated evacuations in low-lying areas as a precautionary measure.
Monitoring agencies and meteorological centers continue to track the cyclone’s trajectory, providing regular updates to ensure the well-being of communities in its path.
