A warning cyclone class 3 is still in force in Mauritius, this Thursday, February 6, 2014 at 10 hours, local time, in the wake of strong tropical storm, Edilson, which continues to dangerously approach the island with a South-South-West displacement now.
 
Strong tropical storm, Edilson, located at about 75km off the coast of blue bay by the points 20.9 south and 58.6 East and should move closer to the east coast of Mauritius, off Plaisance, in the hours to come to a distance of about 80 kilometers.
 
Strong tropical storm, Edilson, (of type monsoon), still represents a direct threat to Mauritius.
 
The risk that Mauritius is exposed to cyclonic conditions are still taken into account by the services of the meteorological station of Vacoas.

The first gusts of 80 km/h between are beginning to reach the island.
 
As a reminder, schools and the Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Plaisance airport are closed.
