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.
