Cyclone Nisarga LIVE tracking: Cyclone Nisarga is set to make landfall in Maharashtra today not too far from Mumbai. The state government has stepped up efforts to prepare for the impact. Several parts of the state, including Mumbai, have been advised to get prepared to handle any emergency that may arise. If you are living in the state and want to keep yourself constantly updated then one platform can help you track the path and trajectory of the cyclone.
Called Windy.com, the platform uses animated visualisation to show the live status of the cyclone. The platform doesn’t only provide the current status but also shows the entire trajectory of the expected path of the cyclone. The app has a slider at the bottom which could be adjusted to find out the path of the cyclone at different times. The platform can be useful for people in the affected areas.
Cyclone Nisarga, hovering over the Arabian Sea 190 km from Mumbai, is likely to make landfall at the coastal town Alibaug near the megapolis between 1 pm and 4 pm on Wednesday, a senior IMD official said.
