Tropical Cyclone “Gati” has rapidly intensified to near Category 4 hurricane equivalent overnight November 22, 2020, and is now — 13:00 UTC on November 22 — making extremely dangerous landfall in Somalia. This is extremely dangerous, rapidly evolving situation leaving not much time for residents to prepare.

​Gati formed early November 22 in the Arabian Sea, just east of Somalia, as the 3rd named storm of the 2020 North Indian Ocean cyclone season. 

While the season is considered below average, with only six systems and 3 named ones, Somalia has never experienced such a powerful cyclone.
