Mumbaikars could blame cyclone ‘Ockhi’ if the city witnesses rainfall in the coming days. Though there is no reason to worry, the Indian Meteorological Department officials confirmed that cyclone Ochki will move closer to the Maharashtra coast by December 4, 2017, and this was confirmed on Sunday. 

The cyclone was centered at least 870 km off South West of Mumbai and it is very likely that the cyclone will move northwestwards of Maharashtra and then move towards South Gujarat during the ensuing 72 hours between December 4 night and December 6 morning.

The IMD officials have asked fishermen living on the Mumbai-Konkan coast to suspend fishing until Tuesday.
