Eight such advisories have been sent to the states and UTs so far, a Home Ministry spokesperson said.

Following the movement of this cyclonic depression and the consequential heavy rainfall caused by it, the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) battalions in Maharashtra and Gujarat have been put on the alert.

Simultaneously, to meet any emergent requirement of rescue and relief, the NDRF teams comprising about 400 trained personnel with boats and other equipments, have been pre-positioned in Goa, Maharashtra and Gujarat. Another 200 men have been kept in readiness for Mumbai.
