Cyclone Ockhi may not hit the Gujarat coast near Surat said the IMD on the intervening night of December 5 and 6. Cyclonic storm Ockhi has already turned into a "deep depression" and may hit south Gujarat only as a "depression" late tonight, according to an official statement. After dumping rains in Mumbai, Cyclone Ockhi was likely to make a landfall near Surat. Several top political leaders were forced to cancel their rallies in the poll-bound state, which experienced showers. Although the cyclone has weakened, the state administration has made all the preparation to meet any eventuality.
