April 25, 2021 - Tropical Cyclone Jobo


Tropical Cyclone Jobo

Tropical Cyclone Jobo was spinning towards Tanzania on April 23, 2021
when the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer acquired a
true-color image of the storm. Jobo sported a dense, cloud-filled
center and convective bands covered the Aldabra group of islands, part
of the Outer Islands of the Seychelles. The borders of four islands
that make up the Aldabra group have been outlined in this image.
Tropical Cyclone Jobo’s outer bands stretched almost to the Tanzanian

At 0.00 UTC on April 23 (8:00 p.m. EDT April 22), the center of
Tropical Cyclone Jobo was located about 155 miles 9250 km) north of
Comoros Island and 292 miles (470 km) east of the Tanzania coast.
Maximum sustained winds were reported to be 52 mph (83 km/h), which is
the equivalent of a Tropical Storm in the Atlantic Basin.

Tropical Storm Jobo weakened as it moved toward Tanzania, making
landfall early on April 25 local time (late April 24 EDT) as a
deteriorating depression. At 2100 UTC (5:00 p.m. EDT) on April 24, the
Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) issued its final report on Tropical
Cyclone Jobo. At that time the storm was still off the coast of
Tanzania and was carrying maximum sustained winds of 25 mph (40 km/h).
JTWC expected the remnants of the system to track inland for the next
12 hours, bringing heavy rain to Tanzania.
