The cyclone which was caused by a deep depression in the Bay of Bengal has already brought heavy downpour to major areas in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Puducherry. "A well marked low pressure is lying over South Andaman Sea and its neighbourhood".

"The fishermen are not ready to forsake their boats and return to the coast via rescue ships", he said.

In his letter, Stalin, also Leader of Opposition in the Tamil Nadu Assembly, urged her to direct the Coast Guard to search and rescue "thousands of fishermen fighting for their lives in the mid sea, so as to prevent further loss of lives due to the Ockhi cyclone". The India Meteorological Department (IMD), is predicting that it is likely to move towards the Lakshadweep Islands and intensify further into a severe cyclonic storm in the next 24 hours.
