By Our Correspondent, 06/12/2017, New Delhi

 

After torrential rains in Mumbai, Cyclone Ockhi moved closer to Gujarat on Tuesday and the landfall is near Surat today. Cyclonic storm Ockhi has already turned into a "deep depression" and may hit south Gujarat only as a "depression" late Wednesday night, according to an official statement.

The deep depression is located around 240 kms south- southwest of Surat. The cyclonic storm had caused havoc in Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Lakshadweep islands. Due to the impact of the cyclone, Mumbai and its suburbs experienced rains since Tuesday morning, but it subsided by the afternoon even as hailstorm lashed some sections of the Mumbai-Pune Expressway.
