  • Cyclone Ockhi Weakens Over Arabian Sea Gujarat Spared

Due to the impact of the cyclone, Mumbai and its suburbs received rains since Tuesday morning, but the weather eased by afternoon even as a hailstorm lashed some sections of the Munbai-Pune Expressway.

Amid the heat of the Gujarat polls, cyclone Ockhi, eddying menacingly towards the state's coast, poured cold water on the campaigning today, forcing cancellation of rallies of several top leaders, including those by BJP chief Amit Shah and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi.

Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has also issued an advisory warning people against visiting beaches in view of the high tide alert due to the cyclone.

Though Cyclone Ockhi, which was expected to make landfall in Maharashtra, has now moved away from state's coast, parts of the state are expected to receive light to heavy rainfall in the next 24 hours.
