On Tuesday evening, as Cyclone Nisarga drew closer to Maharashtra, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray addressed the state via video conferencing.

"Live safe and help those in need during cyclone which is expected to strike on June 3 afternoon. Take all precautions," Thackeray said on Tuesday night. He urged people to be prepared to tackle the coming cyclone in the same way that people had responded in the fight against the novel coronavirus.

Chief Minister Thackeray said the administration is taking due precautions, and urged people to cooperate amid the Nisarga cyclone warning. He also urged people to avoid taking shelter in temporary structures, dilapidated buildings and the like. He also urged people to switch off power if necessary, especially in rural areas, and store drinking water.

"We have set up jumbo facilities for COVID patients at BKC. After the cyclone warning patients have been shifted to safer places," he added.
