Chapala is a Rare Beast in Arabian Sea

November 2, 2015

Climate Nexus Press advisory:

Cyclone Chapala—a rare Middle Eastern cyclone—is poised to make landfall in Yemen as a Category 1 or 2 storm early Tuesday morning. It brings a dangerous storm surge, torrential rain, flooding and mudslides to Mukalla, a coastal city of 300,000 people who have likely never experienced a storm of this magnitude. It has already taken three lives in Socotra, an island 368 km off Yemen’s coast./Climate Denial Crock of The Week
