Mauritius: Cyclone Class 1 alert in the wake of Tropical Storm Edilson

A cyclone of class 1 is currently in force in Mauritius since 4 p.m. local time, Tuesday, February 4, 2014.
Moderate tropical storm baptized Edilson in late afternoon was located 440 kilometers north of Mauritius and moved to the south at a speed of 17 km / h.
The low-pressure phenomenon represents a potential threat to the island according to the services of the meteorological station of Vacoas, as reported by the site.
Tropical Storm Edilson might approach dangerously close to the east coast of the island and could even intensify in the vicinity of Mauritius.

"On this path it could pass on our island or very close to us," specified the forecaster Philippe Veerapatren on the airwaves of the private station Radio Plus.
