Cyclone Nisarga is entering the Mumbai city at a very fast pace and several guidelines have been released by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to ensure the safety of people.
Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar shared a video on his official social media handle quoting the precautionary measures shared by the BMC.
In his video, the actor urges the Mumbaikars to stay safe and take a secure shelter to protect themselves. The actor also asked citizens to keep the gas sources and electricity switches off if not needed and keep candle, torches and food items handy. The ‘Padman’ actor also shared a helpline number, 1916, to reach out BMC in the time of need.
The actor shared the video along with the caption that reads: “Cyclone Nisarga Precautions
The much-awaited Mumbai rains are here but this year we have an uninvited guest, #CycloneNisarga! In case it does hit us, here are some precautions shared by @my_bmc, we will get through this as well. Praying for everyone’s well-being 🙏🏻
For any queries and concerns regarding the cyclone, dial 1916 and press 4.”
Apart from Khiladi Kumar, Priyanka Chopra who is currently under home quarantine with hubby Nick Jonas also shared several Dos and Don’ts issued by BMC to stay safe during the cyclonic disturbance that is looming over Mumbai.
#CycloneNisarga is making its way to Mumbai, my beloved home city of more than 20 million people, including my mom and brother. Mumbai hasn't experienced a serious cyclone landfall since 1891, and at a time when the world is so desperate, this could be especially devastating. pic.twitter.com/zgne0vVpnR
