Should I move or cancel my move?Members,
I am from Tamilnadu's Tirunelveli district. As of now, I am in Tirunelveli and I have booked a ticket to Bengaluru by the Nagercoil-Bengaluru Bengaluru Express leaving Tirunelveli Jn at 8.55 p.m today Saturday the 6th October 2018, and scheduled to reach Bengaluru at 9.30 a.m. on 7th October 2018.
The IMD(Indian Metrological Department) has issued a Red Alert saying that there would be a severe cyclonic storm in the states of Tamilnadu, Kerala, Puducherry and coastal Karnataka on 7th October 2018. The severe storm is expected to move North Westerly towards Oman affecting the southern states of India. I am sure, it would be a very severe storm that might cause more damages to the properties and the public.
My problem is - If I leave Tirunelveli on 6th p.m, I will be on my midway on 7th October. I will be at Madurai midnight of 6/7 Oct. I am afraid whether I will be caught in the storm and not reach Bengaluru safely at 9.30 a.m on 7th Oct.
My question is - Should I leave Tirunelveli today as planned, or should I postpone my move to some other day when the weather will be calm and favourable?
Though taking a risk is like eating rusk, I do not want to suffer during a train journey without food and water, if affected. I have seen the effect of storms in the past, the flooding of railway tracks, delay/cancellation of trains, stranded passengers without water and food etc;
@My dear ISC friends, What do you suggest? Should I move or not?
