In view of the cyclone situation across Maharashtra, Mumbai Mayor Kishori Pednekar visited the control room of Mumbai’s civic body, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) in order to monitor the current situation with regards to the preparatory work completed by the civic body. 

Moreover, the Head of Emergency Management Department Rashmi Lokhande was present on the occasion.

The BMC has urged the citizens to not venture outside carelessly. Earlier, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) had advised fishermen on and off the coast of Maharashtra not to go to sea.

According to sources, temporary shelters have already been set up for those living near low-lying, coastal areas in case they need to relocate. The Emergency Management Department is also coordinating with the Navy, Coast Guard, Army and National Disaster Response Team to provide assistance as required.
