Chennai, Dec 19 (IBNS): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday chaired a high- level meeting to review post- Cyclone Ockhi situation in Lakshadweep.

In Kanyakumari and Thoothukudi districts of Tamil Nadu, strong winds uprooted more than 500 trees, snapped power lines and damaged settlements close to the sea.
The name Ockhi was given by Bangladesh, under the the tropical cyclone naming system initiated by the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) and the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) in 2000.
Congress President Rahul Gandhi met the family members of the fishermen to hear their distress on last Thursday.
