The depression conditions over Santa Cruz area are much less than the severe depressions and cyclones forming in the Bay of Bengal. Even when there were cyclone alerts in Chennai - with conditions of 85+kmph gales and 110+kmph squalls, the only alert I remember receiving were those warning fishermen not to venture in to the sea and evacuation of people from low lying areas (mostly slums) to higher ground. Now, they have issued a 'traffic alert' in Mumbai. But, I don't see moving of people to nearby schools!
