Cyclone Ockhi: Toll reaches 14 in Kerala
(THIRUVANANTHAPURAM, Dec 02, 2017):Cyclone Ockhi that hit Kerala two days ago claimed seven more lives on Saturday, taking the toll in the state to 14. With 117 fishermen still missing, rescue operations continued on the third day.

So far, 450 fishermen have been rescued by various agencies, and about 530 families shifted to various relief camps in the southern districts of Kerala.

Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis, in a response to defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman's tweet seeking help for stranded fishermen, replied, "In all, 68 fishing boats have reached, out of which 66 are from Kerala and 2 from Tamil Nadu with total 952 fisherman on board. All are safe. Maharashtra will completely look after everyone till weather permits them to go back." Sitharaman had tweeted that some boats missing from Beypore had reached Devgad port but could not enter.

Sources in the Kerala government said they haven't received any official communication from Maharashtra regarding the arrival of these boats. "We are still not in a position to confirm whether over 100 fishermen who are yet to be traced are in those boats," a senior official said.

Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan said the government will request the Centre to declare Cyclone Ockhi a national disaster. "I have authorised chief secretary K M Abraham to prepare a detailed representation in this regard,"he said.

The state government has also announced a compensation of Rs 10 lakh for the families of fisherman who lost their lives in the cyclone-related incidents.
