Port Blair (Andaman and Nicobar Islands), Dec. 8(ANI): The Lieutenant Governor of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Jagdish Mukhi, on Thursday assured that the tourists stranded on Havelock Island are safe and that there has been no damage to property or loss of life. Mukhi said, "In Andaman and Nicobar deep depression continues to prevail, but we are hoping the situation will be normal by the evening. In this week, there has been no damage to property or loss of life." He further said that only tourists have been asked to stay inside their hotels because of the bad weather and the rough sea. "We have instructed them to stay in their respective hotels. Each and every tourist who has come to the island is safe and enjoying. We have sent ships there. As soon as the weather gets normal, the tourists will be shifted to Port Blair. We have given instructions to the hotel owners not to charge the tourists for additional stay and food," Mukhi said. "We have made sure that schools and colleges will remain closed. I am hoping that by tomorrow the situation will be normal. There is one silver lining that all flights are taking off and landing from Port Blair," he added. (ANI)
