Further, the Met Office stated that it was monitoring the tropical cyclone and it is likely to hit the coasts of Yemen and Oman in the next two days.
No threat is expected from the tropical cyclone to Pasni, Gwadar, Ormara or Karachi, it added.
The only impact of the cyclone will be seen in the form of an overcast and there will be no storm surge, strong winds or heavy rainfall on Pakistan’s coastal areas, the Met Office further said.
