Schools Shut In Mumbai, Parts Of Maharashtra As Cyclone Ockhi Nears
Rains started in Mumbai yesterday afternoon as Cyclone Ockhi, after causing devastation in Kerala, crept towards the Maharashtra-Gujarat coast. The meteorological office predicts that it will weaken before it hits and settle over Gulf of Kambhat near Surat as a deep depression by Tuesday night. Schools in four districts of Maharashtra, and the Mumbai Metropolitan area, have been closed on Tuesday as a precautionary measure. The number of deaths in the rain-related incidents in Kerala ahead of the cyclone has been put at 25.
