Squally winds speed reaching 45-55 kmph gusting to 65 kmph is very likely over Comorin area and along and off south Tamilnadu and south Kerala coasts during the next 48 hrs and along and off Kerala coast in subsequent 24 hrs.

Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said Tuesday that at present it has not been predicted that the depression formed south of Kanyakumari and south west of Sri Lanka would directly affect the State.

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.

The Kerala government has already issued advanced warning to the fishermen and asked coastal villages to be on alert.

The department has forecast isolated heavy rainfall and thundershower in the southern parts of Tamil Nadu and Kerala and Lakshadweep till Thursday.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD), in an evening bulletin, said the depression adjoining the equatorial Indian Ocean had moved north-northwestward and lay centred about 360 km southeast of Minicoy, 280 km south-southwest of Thiruvananthapuram and 320 km east-northeast of Male.

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.

Last year, cyclone Ockhi has barrelled into the Lakshwadeep islands after drenching the neighboring states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu. It is very likely to move north-north-westwards and intensify into a deep depression during next 48 hrs.
