Cyclone Megh may strike Yemen

Posted by on Monday, November 9, 2015

Cyclone Megh made a direct hit on Socotra Island Sunday and may track to mainland Yemen. This is the second cyclone to hit the region this month.

Cyclone Megh was a strong Category 2 near the time it made a direct hit on Socotra Island. However the U.S. Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) classified Megh as a Category 3 equivalent near the time it hit Socotra Island.

It is very rare for this area of the world to get hit by a cyclone.

The storm may loose strength as it nears the Horn of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. The dry air may break the storms apart.
