It's been drizzling since last night with medium to heavy showers in between. Rains in December is something unheard of, but this is all because of cyclone Ockhi... It originated from south of India and traversed to west since last 2 days. Government of India has declared holidays for schools and colleges and issued warning to the coastal areas. As per latest news...Ockhi originated from an area of disturbed weather near Sri Lanka on November 29. Proximity to land initially prevented significant strengthening, favorable conditions as it entered the Arabian Sea allowed it to quickly strengthen on December 1. After causing damages to property and life on Sri Lanka, Ockhi headed towards Lakshadweep and mainland India, with Gujarat likely to be affected at the cyclone's end-stages.

Typhoon is no ordinary weather, go to higher places if your area is prone to flood.
