Three months after Cyclone Ockhi ravaged Kerala coast, the state government on Tuesday warned fishermen not to venture into the seas for the next 48 hours as depression in the Arabian Sea has deepened further.

The well-marked low-pressure area over Equatorial Indian Ocean has intensified into a depression 390 km South-South-West of Thiruvananthapuram and is on course for another round of strengthening.

He asked all fishermen who ventured into the sea before the warning came into force to return immediately.

The meeting, chaired by Chief Secretary Paul Antony, directed District Collectors to arrange relief camps for relocation of families from vulnerable areas of the coast. Coast Guard ships are on standby while the government has set up two control rooms in Alappuzha and Thiruvananthapuram.
