The deep depression in the Arabian Sea had intensified into Cyclone Shaheen on Friday morning. The Cyclone Warning Division of the IMD has said that the system is moving away from the Indian coast.

Cyclone Shaheen was formed from the remnants of Cyclone Gulab, which had hit the east coast on September 26. Cyclone Gulab’s intensity had reduced further as it traversed central India, pounding parts of Telangana, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, and Gujarat. As its remnants entered the Arabian Sea, they intensified further into a cyclonic storm on Friday morning.
