Amitabh Bachchan cyclone tauktae

In the wake of Cyclone Tauktae affecting Mumbai, megastar Amitabh Bachchan urged Mumbaikars to stay safe and protected. Taking to his Twitter handle, Big B wrote, “The effects of the #CycloneTauktae have begun .. rains in Mumbai .. please be safe and protected .. prayers as ever (sic).” 

Big B also mentioned the cyclone in his Sunday blog. “The Gods are angered .. CoViD continues but the efforts are coming in and the graphs at some places are beginning to show some stability, though not completely out of the woods. Cyclone Tauktae in the Arabian Sea intensifies along the Western Coasts of India .. from the South moving up .. the effects of its arrival have begun here in Mumbai with rain as I write ..  the preparations for the monsoon rain sheds had just begun so the vulnerability of leaks, is there and the dealing with rain leakages about is a concern .. we try to make some makeshift arrangements .. but they are weak and not entirely protective. The severity of the monsoons as you all know is massive and all buildings and locations become most vulnerable during those 3-4 months of its presence,” the Piku actor wrote in his blog.

He added further, “The JVPD Scheme is a low lying area and flooding is most imminent .. so ..The word ‘tauktae’ .. the naming of storms cyclones typhoons et all are taken up and suggested by the countries in the region and this name has been given by Myanmar, erstwhile Burma, which is the name of a ‘vocal lizard’.”

Cyclone Tauktae is expected to hit the Gujarat coast tonight. Mumbai airport has been shut today as a precaution.
