GANDHINAGAR:  At least three people have lost their lives due to Cyclone Tauktae, said Chief Minister Vijay Rupani on Tuesday.

Rupani held a high-level review meeting on cyclone situation and rainfall conditions in the state, especially in the 14 coastal districts. “Three people have lost their lives due to cyclone Tauktae.

Around 40,000 trees have fallen and 16,500 huts have affected in the state due to the cyclone,” said the Chief Minister.

Currently, the severe cyclonic storm Tauktae is hovering over Saurashtra in Gujarat. India Meteorological Department (IMD) earlier today said it would move north-northeastwards and weaken gradually into a cyclonic storm during the next three hours.
