    Cyclone Nisarga: IMD issues red alert for Mumbai as the city braces for first tropical cyclone

    The depression in the Arabian Sea is likely to intensify into a severe cyclone and cross north Maharashtra and south Gujarat coasts on June 3, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has said.

    The Met department has predicted very heavy to extremely heavy rainfall in parts of Maharashtra and Gujarat on June 3 and June 4.

    Cyclone Nisarga is likely to make landfall over Palghar district, around 100 km north of Mumbai by Wednesday evening or at night.

    The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) on Monday deployed nine teams in Maharashtra. Of these, three are on standby in Mumbai, two in Palghar, one each in Thane, Raigad, Ratnagiri and Sindhudurg

    In Gujarat, the NDRF has deployed 11 teams besides one team each in Daman&Diu and Dadra&Nagar Haveli.

    The cyclonic storm called Nisarga follows super cyclonic storm Amphan that ravaged the West Bengal-Bangladesh coast this month on May 20. According to weather.com, the name Nisarga is suggested by Bangladesh.

    It will be the first to be used from a new list of names for cyclones for North Indian Ocean cyclones released in 2020.
