Tauktae stands to be the strongest storm to impact Gujarat since 1998 as it battered parts of the state and left behind a trail of destruction along the coast, uprooting electric poles and trees, and damaging several houses and roads, before weakening, officials said on Tuesday.

Cyclone Tauktae has impacted the weather conditions in several parts of Northern India including Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan and Delhi where rainfall was witnessed today.

    There is a massive tragedy unfolding in Mumbai high where nearly 90 people working for the country's oil industry are missing. They have jumped into the sea after their barge sank with life jackets. 40 hours have passed they have not been located. but Prime Minister has not visited Maharashtra only 20 minutes by air from Gujarat. This is unfortunate considering the prime minister belongs to the entire country and not just one state
