A tropical storm is currently being formed in the north-east of Rodrigues.
The cyclone will probably be called Corentin. Experts from the meteorological station of Vacoas will proceed for the naming process later during the day today, January 21.
The newly-forming cyclone is nearer to Rodrigues at the moment. It could be felt yesterday night through weak winds that were moving in a west-north-west direction at 10 km/h. The cyclone is expected to intensify in the coming hours though. By tomorrow, it might become a strong tropical storm.
L’Express.mu reports from the meteorological station of Vacoas that the storm has been showing signs of intensification last night; they were to continue analysing its progression.
The tropical storm does not yet constitute a danger to Mauritius. It is forecasted to pass by the east of Rodrigues from a distance today afternoon.
