Vikhroli woman escapes falling tree

Cyclone Tauktae hit the city of Mumbai quite hard. One saw trees uprooting, electric poles falling, and damaged cars. Amidst the wreckage, a video of a woman who narrowly escaped a falling tree has garnered wide acclaim on Twitter.

The incident captured on CCTV shows footage of a woman who managed to run away before the tree fell on her.

Meanwhile, The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) Director General SN Pradhan said that the "worst is over" and Cyclone Tauktae will become a depression by today evening

Gusty winds reaching the speed of 114 kmph and heavy showers lashed Mumbai and its neighbouring areas on Monday.

Cyclonic storm Tauktae claimed three lives and left 10 others injured in Mumbai over the last 24 hours when it passed close to the city coast, civic officials said on Tuesday.

The sea here has been very rough due to the impact of the cyclone and the huge tidal waves on Monday dumped tonnes of garbage at chowpatties, Marine Drive and the iconic Gateway of India in Mumbai, they said.

Videos of huge tidal waves lashing the Gateway of Mumbai area went viral on social media platforms where people also shared images of the trail of destruction left by the cyclonic storm at some of the prominent monuments here.
