A deep depression formed over the Arabian Sea on Monday afternoon is likely to bring heavy to very heavy rain in parts of Kerala, coastal and south interior Karnataka, Konkan region, Goa and the Lakshadweep islands on June 13 morning, the India Meteorological Department said Tuesday.

According to the official statement, the cyclone is likely to cause heavy rainfall in the coastal districts of Gujarat and Storm surge of height of about 1.0- 1.5 m above the astronomical tides likely to inundate the low lying coastal areas of Kutch, Devbhoomi Dwarka, Porbandar, Junagarh, Diu, Gir Somnath, Amreli and Bhavnagar districts at the time of landfall.

D Sivananda Pai, head of the IMD's long-range forecasting said, "Progress of the monsoon seems unlikely till 15-16 June because the cyclone will drag moisture away".

It deployed National Disaster Response Force personnel in the coastal areas of Saurashtra and Kutch on Tuesday morning.

According to an IMD advisory, the "Wind speed is very likely to increase further becoming gale wind speed reaching 90-100 kmph gusting to 115 kmph over east-central & adjoining northeast Arabian Sea".

It was centred over the Eastcentral Arabian Sea, about 460 km north-northwest of Aminidivi (Lakshadweep), 540 km southsouthwest of Mumbai (Maharashtra) and 690 km almost south of Veraval (Gujarat) during the early morning hours.

Rupani told reporters in Gandhinagar that the entire coastline, starting from Kutch to south Gujarat, has been put on "high alert". Fishermen are advised not to venture into the Sea along & off Gujarat coast till 14th June. In a high-level meeting after the IMD warning, the state government deployed 15 teams of NDRF.

A day after Kerala received its first delayed monsoon, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) said that a cyclone is heading towards Gujarat.

"June 13 and 14 are crucial for us".

Heavy to very heavy rains very likely at many places in the districts of Saurashtra, South Gujarat, Diu, Daman and Dadra Nagar Haveli in coming two days.

Gujarat is at present reeling under severe heat wave as the maximum temperature in major cities, including Ahmedabad, has been over 43 degrees Celsius since the last week of May.
