MUMBAI: As Cyclone Okchi is set to make its way towards the city, schools and colleges in Mumbai Metropolitan Region, Sindhudurga, Thane, Raigad and Palghar districts will remain shut on Tuesday.

"Precautionary holiday declared for schools and colleges in Mumbai Metropolitan Region, Sindhudurga, Thane, Raigad and Palghar Districts for the safety of the students due to the serious weather predictions on #CycloneOckhi #MumbaiRains" (sic)," he Tweeted.

The disaster management unit of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has also issued an advisory against visiting beaches in view of high tide alert issued for tonight and tomorrow morning due to Cyclone Ockhi.

As per BMC, tides of more than 5 metres height are expected tonight and tomorrow post-midnight.

People, residing in the area of Dadar Chowpatty, have been given special instructions, as a huge crowd is expected towards the beach ahead of the Babasaheb Ambedkar Anniversary on November 6.

On the other hand, the Central Railway Mumbai Division has also geared up to tackle with the Cycle Okchi.

It has updated all the emergency numbers and emergency cell has been opened at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus and Kalyan.
