The India Meteorological Department has said, Cyclonic Storm Pabuk over the Andaman Sea and neighbourhood moved further west-northwestwards with a speed of 21 kmph in the past six hours.

Warning fishermen against venturing out to sea, it said, the storm is very likely to move west-northwestwards for some more time. 

The Met department said, Pabuk is very likely to move northwestwards and cross Andaman Islands around tomorrow evening as a cyclonic storm with a wind speed of 70-80 kmph gusting to 90kmph.

Thereafter, it is very likely to move north-northwestwards and then recurve northeastwards towards Myanmar coast and weaken gradually during January 7th and 8th.

Rainfall at many places with heavy falls at isolated places is very likely to commence over the Andaman Islands. 

The IMD warned of damage to thatched huts and power and communication lines when the storm passes the region.

It urged people on the Andaman Islands to remain in safe places and suspend all fishing operations in the Andaman Sea and southeast and east-central Bay of Bengal for two days. 

Pabuk, a once in three-decades weather system, originated over the Gulf of Thailand made landfall yesterday afternoon in Nakhon Si Thammarat province.
