It is expected to turn into a severe hurricane in the next 24 hours.

The weather department said that the effects of Cyclone Yaas will not reach Pakistan and that it will not even cause any suspension in Karachi's sea winds.

Last week, the port city experienced gusty winds and dust storms due to the cyclone Tauktae that passed by Pakistan's coastal belt without touching it.

However, the cyclone caused warm winds to blow in the city and raised the temperature of the metropolis.
