Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said that he was “continuously” monitoring the situation in various parts of the country due to Cyclone Ockhi.

In a tweet, Modi said: “Continuously monitoring the situation arising in various parts of the country due to #CycloneOckhi.”

“Spoke to all relevant authorities and officials. All possible assistance is being provided to those affected,” he said.

After leaving a trail of destruction on the southern coast, Cyclone Ockhi is expected to make landfall in coastal Gujarat on Tuesday with squally winds and heavy rainfall.

Maharashtra, too, is on a state of high alert to deal with the side-effects of the stormy weather. A precautionary holiday has been announced for all schools in the coastal Maharashtra districts.
