"The cyclone's effect will prevail over Gujarat on June 12, 13 and 14", he added.

Cyclone Vayu is expected to be the closest to the Saurashtra Coast tomorrow, giving heavy rains, very strong winds and very rough sea conditions. "It is very likely to cause adverse impact in terms of wind and rainfall over Saurashtra and Kutch, mainly on June 13 and 14". Orange alerted cyclonic storm is expected to bring widespread rain all along India's western coast, as per IMD. It is likely to move north-northwestwards during the next three days (by Thursday).

Fishermen who ventured into the sea have been called back, he said.

"We have also asked all the ports to display the danger signal number 1", he said.
