Gujarat is now completely safe. There exists no threat from cyclone Vayu now as the storm has veered towards the west in the Arabian Sea.
Before the cyclone, you should stay patient, keep your mobile phones charged so that you can contact someone, listen to the radio and see news channels for warnings.
The weather department on Tuesday predicted heavy rainfall in the state due to cyclone Vayu, prompting the authorities to close the shoreline for swimming.
The cancellations were made as a precaution even though the cyclone changed its course and is unlikely to make landfall in Gujarat.
The state government said it had begun moving about 300,000 people from the most vulnerable areas into shelters.
