The Indian Coast Guard Ship Samarth responded to a distress call and rescued 15 crew from a fishing boat named Milad, off Goa coast on Monday late night as a very severe cyclonic storm Tauktae with winds gusting up to 185 km per hour began making landfall on Gujarat's Saurashtra coast near Diu.
"Indian Coast Guard Ship Samarth rescued 15 fishermen off Goa coast and towed the boat Milad to safety. Another Coast Guard Ship Samrat sailed out from Mumbai to attend to a distress call from a vessel off Mumbai with 137 personnel onboard", informed the ICG in a tweet.
