Social media is coming to the rescue to keep us safe during Cyclone Tauktae with tips and timely updates on these accounts.

For the first time since March 2020, most of us are extremely thankful for the lockdown today, at least those of us with a stable roof over our heads. With cyclone Tauktae here, the panic that was in the air since Covid-19 first hit us has only gotten worse. The sound and sight of the winds alone have been terribly scary for us while we’re safe indoors. We can’t possibly imagine how bad it must be for those living on the coastal line in Mumbai, Kerala, Goa, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu amongst others. In the middle of walls collapsing, trees being uprooted, roads are occupied with delivery boys traveling in this insane weather, sweepers are making sure that gutters aren’t overflowing, the police is trying to control the situation, a lot of heroes are on the roads risking their lives for us.

While there isn’t much we can do right now except ensure our own safety, we can spread relevant information, safety tips, verified helpline numbers on social media, and help those who might be stuck.

Besides these, please follow verified government accounts in your respective states for relevant updates.

Please stay safe, please stay indoors.
