Tropical Cyclone 06A is heading to the area where unprecedented rainfall has recently killed hundreds in Eastern and Central Africa where already one million people are displaced
Tropical Cyclone 06A off the coast of Somalia, the cyclone is swirling in the northwestern Indian Ocean with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph, according to The Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC). Additionally, a strong wind shear off of the Horn of Africa should prevent Tropical Cyclone 06A from intensifying much. On the immediate right of Tropical Cyclone 06A, Tropical Cyclone 07A is forming 367 nautical miles southwest of Mumbai off of the coastline of India. The maximum sustained winds for that system are expected to stay around 35 mph.
Tropical Cyclone 06A will continue to track southwestward before making landfall Thursday evening. Its winds are then expected to quickly diminish to less than 30 mph as it moves across the area immediately north of Somalia’s capital city, Mogadishu, the storm is expected to bring torrential rain to an area of the world which is suffering unprecedented flooding, with hundreds dead and one million displaced from flooding earlier in the month. Another tropical system is forming south of the equator and is expected to impact northern Madagaskar.
