  • Rare Tropical Storm CHAPALA headed for Yemen

    Tropical Cyclone Chapala, the second strongest storm on record for the Arabian Sea, is headed westward toward Yemen. Chapala’s top sustained winds were down to 135 mph, at the other end of the Category 4 scale from the peak of 155 mph observed on Friday. This is a rare occurence since only 3 tropical cyclones are known to have made landfall on the southern coast of Oman and Yemen betwen 1891 and the beginning of modern satellite records (1990). Currently there seems to be no info on expected damages. Read more at
