Colombo: Cyclone Burevi made landfall at the coast of Sri Lanka between 11:30 pm on Wednesday and 12:30 am Thursday, said the Regional Meteorological Centre (RMC), Chennai.

“The Cyclonic Storm Burevi over Sri Lanka moved west-northwestwards with a speed of 11 kmph during past six hours and lay centered at 0530 hrs IST of 3 December over Sri Lanka,” read the bulletin.

With wind speed of 70-80 gusting to 90 kmph, the cyclone is expected to cross south Tamil Nadu coast between Thursday night and Friday morning.

“It would then move nearly west-southwestwards across Pamban area by afternoon and cross south Tamil Nadu coast between Pamban and Kanyakumari during 3 December night and 4 December early morning as a Cyclonic Storm with wind speed of 70-80 gusting to 90 kmph. Thus its impact on south Tamil Nadu coastal districts is very likely to commence from 3 December forenoon initially over Ramanathapuram district and gradually towards Kanyakumari district,” the bulletin added.

The meteorological centre also predicted rainfall at most places in south Tamil Nadu with heavy to very heavy rainfall at few places and extremely heavy fall at isolated places on Thursday.

While North Tamil Nadu on Thursday is likely to receive rainfall at many places with heavy to very heavy rainfall at isolated places.
