NDMA asks fishermen on east & west coasts not to venture out

Wednesday, December 06, 2017

New Delhi: The National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) today asked fishermen in both eastern and western coasts not to venture out in the sea for the next three days as heavy rainfall is expected in many areas due to Cyclone Ockhi.

Asking people not to panic in case of a cyclone alert, the NDMA said in an advisory that fishermen along and off Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu coasts should not venture into sea from December 6 to 8 while fishermen along and off Andaman and Nicobar Islands are advised not to venture into sea till tomorrow. Fishermen living along and off South Gujarat and North Maharashtra coasts are advised not to venture into the sea till tomorrow morning. The severe cyclonic storm Ockhi will move over east- central Arabian sea and move further north-northeastwards with a speed of 21 kmph and lay centred over east-central Arabian sea at latitude 17.5º N and Longitude 70.4º E. about 480 km southwest of Surat and 300 km west-southwest of Mumbai.
