#CycloneVayu: PM Urges All to Follow Real-Time Info to Stay Safe

On Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked all people in Gujarat to stay safe as Cyclone Vayu proceeds towards Saurashtra and Kutch regions of Gujarat. He advised people to follow real-time information being provided by local agencies to stay safe.

An official said that the cyclone is likely to affect Kutch, Jamnagar, Morbi, Junagadh, Porbandar, Devbhoomi-Dwarka, Rajkot, Bhavnagar,  Amreli, and Gir-Somnath districts.

In a tweet, Prime Minister Narendra Modi wrote,

“Praying for the safety and well-being of all those affected by Cyclone Vayu.

The Government and local agencies are providing real-time information, which I urge those in affected areas to closely follow.”

Earlier he tweeted,

“The Central Government is closely monitoring the situation due to Cyclone Vayu in Gujarat and other parts of India.

I have been constantly in touch with State Governments.

NDRF and other agencies are working round the clock to provide all possible assistance.”

Also, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) stated,

“Cyclone Vayu has turned into a very severe cyclonic storm. It would cause gusty winds to blow at a speed of 145 kmph to 170 kmph by Thursday morning.”

Further, an IAF official said that the teams of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) began landing in Gujarat with the help of the Indian Air Force (IAF) to undertake the precautionary shifting of people living on the west coast.

Also, colleges and schools across ten districts in Gujarat will remain closed on June 12 and 13 as a prudent measure.

According to the IMD statement, the Arabian Sea has turned turbulent and bigger waves of the cyclonic storm are advancing towards coastal areas.

To shift about three lakh people from low-lying areas of Saurashtra and Kutch regions, the state government has launched a massive evacuation exercise.

According to the Meteorological department, the Cyclone Vayu will not weaken after landfall.

On Wednesday, the National Crisis Management Committee met in New Delhi. The meeting was attended by the advisor to the administrator of Diu, and Gujarat chief secretary among others and it was chaired by Union home secretary Rajiv Gauba.

The Indian Navy said that Western Naval Command has deployed its ships, helicopters, and aircraft for relief and rescue operations and to alert the fishermen at sea about the impending cyclone. IL aircraft and Naval Long Range Surveillance Aircraft P8I are on standby to undertake SAR missions as needed.

Around 52 companies of the National Disaster Response Force— that means about 100 personnel per company— have been gone to Gujarat already. Apart from them, around ten companies of the Indian Army have been kept on stand-by.

Medical facilities, as well as teams at Indian Naval Hospital Asvini in Mumbai, are being kept ready.

Well, the Somnath Temple remains open despite the alert issued regarding Cyclone Vayu.

Gujarat Minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasama said,

“Temples can’t be closed. We have requested tourists not to visit, but ‘aarti’ being performed since many years can’t be stopped.”

Also, there was an announcement from Western Railway on Wednesday, that all the trains passing through the coastal areas have either been short-terminated or canceled for two days from 6 pm.
