Cyclone Warning Class 1 that had been increased during the last 48 hours. The currrent bulletin of Mauritius Meteorological Services reads like this:
And funnily that's exact the same message they are broadcasting on radio and TV. The consequences on this warning are nice for employees - stay at home and take precautions.
Well, for me this is not the first cyclone. Last year at the end of February I already had the 'chance' to attend cyclone Gamede that was a big one that passed at a distance of about 250km from the west coast of Mauritius. So, I'm really interested on the impact of Gula passing on the east coast.

Alright, that's the current news from Mauritius. I'll stay at home and be online...
