The heavy rain, strong winds and sea waves of as high as 4 metres above normal tides have had an impact on port operations, resulting in delays in vessel schedules along the West Coast of India.
Operations of at least 21 ports in Gujarat were completely suspended and staff evacuated, and as many as 28 vessels berthed at the ports were asked to leave.
Today, Tauktae weakened to a ‘very severe’ cyclone moving north/north-east and will likely to weaken further to a severe cyclonic storm by this afternoon, IMD reports. Heavy rain will continue, with Mumbai having recorded the highest ever 24-hour rain in May.
Delays to shipments out of India are to be expected due to some port suspensions and some vessel delays by 48 hours.
