On Thursday evening, cyclonic storm ‘Gaja’ is set to make a landfall between Cuddalore and Pamban over the Bay of Bengal at about 470km south-east. It is also predicted that cyclone is set to bring heavy rainfall in Tamil Nadu.

The district collectors of Cuddalore, Thanjavur, Nagapattinam, Tiruvarur, Ramanathapuram and Pudukottai have declared a holiday for schools and colleges on Thursday. Tamil Nadu government has declared 30,500 rescue personnel on standby. In the view of the cyclone, all educational institutions in Karaikal and Puducherry regions will remain closed on Thursday.

Central Water Commission has advised to constantly keep an eye on the dams. Revenue Minister of Tamil Nadu RB Udayakumar told our sources that lakes, dams and rivers channels are monitored continuously. CWC has advised taking an action on heavy rainfall in catchment areas as it can fill up the dams in less than 24 hours.

RB Udayakumar said that mobile operators have assured to move ‘Cell on wheels’ to provide uninterrupted mobile connectivity in Cuddalore and Nagapattinam districts which are most likely to affect from cyclone during landfall.

Udayakumar also told our sources that government had a discussion with oil marketing companies to maintain enough fuel stock for the emergency. He also cautioned fishermen to not venture into the sea. He has circulated a list of do’s and do not’s for the people to prevent the cyclone effect.

Met bulletin has a red column that indicates steps to avoid this disaster and the steps that should be taken by the government (which are already done and that people should not panic in such a situation). IMD also warned major damage that can be caused to thatched huts.
