The media reports stated the development noted by India Meteorological Department (IMD). It said that the process of cyclone lashing out at Maharashtra coast started at 12:30 PM and was completed by 2:30 PM. 

Acknowledging the damage caused by the cyclone, Pawar asked the NCP workers to help people affected by the natural disaster while stating that Cyclone Nisarga has damaged public and private properties. 

Meanwhile, Maharashtra Chief Minister has directed the state administration to start the relief work and maintaining a state of operational readiness as Cyclone Nisarga moves toward Mumbai and Thane. 

However, the IMD has said that the cyclone has started weakening and the current wind speed is 90-100 km per hour which will further reduce by the evening. 

The IMD further stated that the cyclone will weaken into a cyclonic storm by evening and into a deep depression by the late night.
