A few months ago, due to the formation of a low-pressure in the Arabian Sea, Maharashtra along with Mumbai was hit by Okhi. The Meteorological Department has now issued an advisory to Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Goa, Maharashtra and the Lakshadweep archipelago over cyclonic storm 'Sagar'.

Beginning of the June, fishermen are forbidden to enter sea owing to the breeding season of fishes, and with only a few days left for the monsoon, fishermen will be hit by the storm and will suffer losses as well.

The cyclonic storm is centered over the Gulf of Aden, about 390 km east-northeast of Yemen's Aden city and 560 km west-northwest of Socotra Islands. As per the report issued by the advisory, it is very likely to intensify further slightly during the next 12 hours and may continue to move westwards for some more time and then move west-southwestwards thereafter.

Keeping the same in mind, fishermen are advised not to venture into the Gulf of Aden and adjoining areas of west central and southwest Arabian Sea during the next 48 hours.
