For a state that suffered extensive damage, especially to its southern coast, and heavy loss of lives when Cyclone Ockhi wreaked havoc late past year, a repetition of the same fear and panic is likely to be experienced among the coastal communities again.

The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) in its latest weather bulletin has warned of heavy rain, thundershowers and squally winds in southern Kerala over the next 48 hours due to the formation of a depression over the southeast Arabian Sea. Coast Guard ships are on standby while the government has set up two control rooms in Alappuzha and Thiruvananthapuram.

Fishermen are advised not to venture out to sea off south Kerala and south Tamil Nadu coasts, the Comorin-Maldives area, equatorial Indian Ocean, the Gulf of Mannar, Lakshadweep area and southeast Arabian Sea till Thursday. Cyclone Ockhi also raised questions about the government's preparedness to deal with major natural calamities.

According to IMD, the depression was likely to move north-northwestwards and intensify into a deep depression during next 48 hrs.
