[CBC뉴스] 열대성 사이클론 엘로이스가 접근한 가운데 22일(현지시간) 모잠비크 산세바스티안 반도의 해상에 강한 바람이 불어 안개구름이 피어오르는 것이 영상으로 포착됐다.
Strong winds caused fog clouds to rise over the sea in Mozambique's San Sebastian Peninsula on Friday (January 22), as tropical cyclone Eloise approached, video footage showed.
Taryn Gilroy, who videoed the strong gusts shaking trees and structures, said that he was fortunate to avoid the path of the storm as it made landfall on Saturday (January 23).
Eloise, fuelled by the warm Indian Ocean waters of the Mozambique channel, gained tropical cyclone status with its strength equivalent to a category two storm, the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO), said.
The storm pummelled the region with hurricane-force winds and heavy rains, according to WMO. Gusts were expected to reach between 150 kmh and 200 kmh near the point of impact.
The cyclone has since lost its strength and has been downgraded to a tropical storm.
