Low pressure in S Andaman sea very likely to become depression

The storm has so far claimed at least 26 lives, killing 13 in India, and 13 more in Sri Lanka, with officials saying many fishermen are still feared to be trapped at sea.

"The cyclone has wrecked havoc on South Kerala with severe damage to coastal areas and has endangered lives of fishermen operating at sea", the Coast Guard informed in a press release.

Earlier, Cyclone Ockhi which created massive destruction in Tamil Nadu and Kerala is now moving towards Lakshwadeep Islands.

11 people, mostly fishermen, remained missing in the two countries as almost 9,000 people sought shelter in relief camps.

Scores of locals suffered flooding and loss of power and telephone lines, as winds of up to 130km/h swept the region.

The India Meteorological Department said heavy rains and strong winds lashed Lakshadweep on Saturday.

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation's disaster management unit advised people against visiting beaches after a high tide alert was issued for Monday and Tuesday, ANI reported.

The Kerala state emergency department said almost 3,200 people were in relief camps. So far 393 people from Kerala have been rescued, Vijayan said, as the state government announced a compensation of Rs 10 lakh to the family of those who died in the storm.

In 1999, more than 8,000 people were killed when a cyclone battered the eastern state of Orissa.

Meanwhile, a fresh spell of heavy rain is in store in some areas of Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Puducherry with a low pressure area forming over south Andaman sea, which is "very likely" to become a depression over the Bay of Bengal.

After a week of hitting the coastline down south, Ockhi is set to move away from Lakshadweep and towards north Maharashtra and Gujarat in the next 48 hours.

This was conveyed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi by Chief Minister K Palaniswami during a telephone conversation between the two leaders last night, a state government release said.
