Nineteenth and last cyclone bulletin for Mauritius issued at 1610 hours on Thursday 18 January  2018.


At 1600 hours, the severe tropical storm Berguitta was centered at about 120 km to the southwest of Le Morne, that is, in latitude 21.3 degrees south and longitude 56.5  degrees east.  Berguitta is now moving away at an accelerated speed of about 18 km/h in a south westerly direction.

Since the associated active cloud bands have already crossed Mauritius in the afternoon and are now moving away, the risk of having gusts of the order of 120 km/h has considerably diminished.

Therefore, the cyclone warning class III has now been waived, and no cyclone warning is now in force in Mauritius.

Weather in Mauritius will remain cloudy to overcast with intermittent rain which may be locally moderate in places.

Wind will blow from the northern sector at about 35 km/h with gusts which may reach 90 km/h in places but weakening gradually.
The public  is advised to be very careful on the road due to strong cross winds.

Sea will be very rough with swells of the order of 4 metres. The public is strictly advised not to go out at sea.

Given the heavy rainfall during the last few days, there are still accumulation of water in certain areas. Rivers and other water courses remain swollen. Ventures in these risky places should be avoided.

No cyclone warning is now in force in Mauritius.
