More teams of National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) moved to Raigad for restoration work post-Cyclone Nisarga. A total of 20 teams deployed across Maharashtra, 7 teams each in Raigad and Mumbai for restoration work.
On Wednesday, Mumbaikars and people in neighbouring areas, including those in coastal Gujarat districts had braced for the cyclone but heaved a sigh of great relief as Nisarga's damage appeared limited to the uprooting of trees in affected areas and tin rooftops being blown away. The cyclone did not cause any major damage on the southern coast of Gujarat following landfall and it passed without any major incidents and casualties, said state relief commissioner.
