Abstract

The fishing activities along the Maharashtra coast were severely disrupted when sudden fury of the sea caught several fishermen in the sea with wind speeds up to 55 kmph on September 23rd, 1988, off many fishing villages of Greater Bombay, Bassein, Satpati and Amala.. The weather experts attributed the phenomenon to a pressure gradient becoming 'Steep' and moving into a well marked low pressure area causing strong winds to blow. The timely rescue operations by the Indian Navy saved many lives or otherwise the death toll could have been much more.
