Prime Minister Narendra Modi also reviewed the preparations made for nature. Talking to the Chief Ministers of both the states, he assured all possible help. Experts believe that this is the first time such a storm will come in Mumbai. Dr. Sunita Devi, in-charge of the topic of hurricane in the Indian Meteorological Department, said that on Tuesday afternoon, the center of the cyclone resurgence southwest of Panjim city of Goa 280 Km and 430 from Mumbai was in the southwest Arabian Sea. It will take a more spectacular look in the next 12 hours.

According to him, on Wednesday, June 3, Nisarg would hit the ground in Alibag near Harihareshwar and Daman between North Maharashtra and South Gujarat. At that time the wind speed can be from 110 to 120 km. During this period, heavy rains may also occur in large areas. Director General of Meteorological Department Mrityunjay Mohapatra had said on Monday that more districts of Maharashtra will be affected by this storm than Gujarat. Mumbai, Thane and Raigad in the coastal areas of Maharashtra will have a greater impact. Fever of one to two meters higher than normal fever will come in the sea.

Many low-lying areas will be submerged. Fishermen are barred from going to sea. 34 teams of NDRF have been deployed. Director General of the force SN Pradhan said that 16 teams have been deployed in Gujarat, 15 teams in Maharashtra, two in Daman and Diu and one team has been deployed in Dadar and Nagar Haveli. People are being sent to safe places from the coastal region.

NDRF teams deployed in both states

NDRF Director General SN Pradhan said that NDRF teams have been deployed in both the states. There are 10 teams in Maharashtra and 11 in Gujarat. However, Gujarat has demanded five more teams. So we are airlifting them from Punjab. They will soon reach Gujarat. There will be a total of 16 teams in Gujarat and 10 teams in Maharashtra. 6 teams are on standby in Maharashtra and two in Gujarat.

It will be seen more on Wednesday

According to IMD, the cyclone will be seen more on Wednesday. During this time the wind can run at a speed of 100-125 km / h. Some areas have been warned of heavy and excessive rainfall. However, it would be less dangerous than ’emphon’.

History of Mumbai is going to change

But this time cyclonic storm ‘Nisarg’ has predicted heavy destruction in Mumbai. The history of Mumbai will change as soon as the ‘storm’ hits the coast of Mumbai. Cyclonic storm conditions are forming in the Arabian Sea. 

Flood hazard on the beaches

According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), Cyclone Nisarg on June 3 will be active about 110 km north of Mumbai. Due to which, the metropolitan city of Mumbai will be prone to floods on all the beaches of Maharashtra. Wind speeds can range from 105 to 115 km per hour when converted into a cyclonic storm. 

Alert issued in Mumbai and surrounding districts

The Maharashtra government has issued an alert in Mumbai and adjoining districts regarding cyclonic storms. Along with this, teams of NDRF have also been deployed. The districts that are under the red alert for the storm include the names of Mumbai city, Mumbai suburban district, Thane, Palghar, Raigad, Ratnagiri and Sindhudurg.

Heavy rain warning due to nature storm

The Indian Meteorological Department on Wednesday issued a warning of heavy rains in coastal areas of Thane, Palghar and Raigad, including Mumbai, due to natural storms. Apart from this, the Central Water Commission has feared that there may be heavy floods in Sindhudurg, Ratnagiri, Palghar, Thane, Mumbai and Nashik. It has also been said that strong and high waves can arise in the coastal areas of northern Maharashtra and southern Gujarat. 

Why is there less danger in Mumbai?

Mumbai has always been less vulnerable to cyclonic storm conditions in the Arabian Sea because the Arabian Sea winds have been mostly westward. It has often been the case that one or two cyclones formed in the Arabian Sea every year have been either towards Oman and Aden Bay or towards Gujarat.

Instructions not to go close to the beach

Seeing the severity of the storm, fishermen have been instructed not to go close to the coast. Besides, instructions have also been given to bring back about 15 thousand boats which have come out to hunt fish. Along with this, continuous monitoring is being done on the speed and direction of the cyclone.

Alert issued in Gujarat as well

Apart from this, alerts have been issued in Gujarat, including Maharashtra, Goa, Daman-Diu and Dadra Nagar Haveli. At the same time, the state governments have ordered the evacuation of people living in low places. A total of 23 teams of National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) have been deployed in all these states to deal with the threat of natural storm. At the same time, there are more than half a dozen districts, where the effect of the storm will be more visible. In such a situation, 10 teams of NDRF have been deployed in these districts.
