Govt in touch with Indians hit by Hurricane Irma: MEA

AMN / NEW DELHI

MEAThe External Affairs Ministry has said that it was monitoring the situation and communicating with the Indian diaspora in the US, Venezuela, France and the Netherlands in the wake of deadly Hurricane Irma.

The Ministry’s Spokesman Ravish Kumar said in a series of tweets today that Indian missions in the four countries were in touch with local government officials to provide assistance to the affected Indians.

Over five million people, including thousands of Indian-Americans, have been asked to evacuate from parts of coastal Florida after Hurricane Irma, an extremely powerful Category 5 storm, barrelled towards the state after wrecking havoc on the Caribbean islands.

Irma is expected to landfall in Florida tomorrow, which at its current trend officials said, is likely to cause devastation across Florida and surrounding areas.

The External Affairs Ministry spokesman also tweeted telephone numbers for Indians to contact in case of emergency: Embassy of India, Venezuela (+58 4241951854 / 4142214721); Netherlands (+31247247247); France (0800000971).
