“We have kept our force ready to face any kind of eventualities arising out of the cyclone,” Director Ashok Menon said.
The disaster management response forces in the North and South Goa, led by the respective Collectors, held marathon meetings on Friday to check the preparedness. An official said since the State-wide curfew is in place, the cyclone impact could be less.
Public movement on the street is minimum and the beaches are also empty. A general warning has been issued advising people to stay indoors.
