Cyclone Jawad: What It Means & How Strong It Is

New Delhi: The Cyclone Jawad, which is headed towards India’s eastern coast on the weekend, will see wind speeds of 90-100 kmph with 90 kmph as it touches the coast near north Andhra Pradesh-Odisha on Sunday.

‘Jawad’ name is given by Saudi Arabia and means generous, magnanimous.

Gulaab se zyada, Titli se kam (More than Gulaab and less than Titli),” the IMD Director General Mrutyunjay Mahapatra described the intensity of Cyclone Jawad (pronounced as Jowad) on Friday.

“Jawad is little more intense than Gulaab and is definitely less than Titli,” Mahapatra was quoted as saying at a media conference by news agency IANS.

Two years ago, Cyclone Bulbul had wind speed of 120 kmph in West Bengal. Cyclone Jawad, as it reaches the West Bengal coast, will be weakened with the wind speed of around 60-70 kmph.

Jawad is not as severe a cyclone as Phani, Hudhud, or Phylin. “As at now, it is a severe cyclonic storm and we are expecting 90-100 kmph wind speed near the coast,” Mahapatra added.

“Usually, severe to very severe cyclones develop the ‘eye’. But we are determining the ‘centre’ with the help of satellite images; we have a lot of buoy observations, coastal observations, stratometers, sea surface winds we are observing. Also, all the Doppler Radars along the coast are actively monitoring the Cyclone Jawad,” he said.
