Mumbai woke up to more rain this morning as Cyclone Ockhi passes by the coast of Maharashtra today before hitting land at around midnight as a deep depression near Surat in Gujarat. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who said he was "continuously monitoring the situation" appealed to BJP workers in Gujarat to help people across the state. "Spoke to all relevant authorities and officials. All possible assistance is being provided to those affected," he tweeted. Schools in Mumbai and neighbouring districts of Maharashtra are closed today as a precaution. In Surat, about 283 km from Mumbai, rescue teams have been stationed.
