    New Delhi: The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) Tuesday said it has deployed rescue and rehabilitation teams at various locations as cyclone Nilofar approaches the Gujarat coast.

    NDRF teams are being deployed in vulnerable areas to mitigate the impact of the cyclonic storm, an official release said here.

    "The National Disaster Response Force is fully geared up for rescue operations in the wake of cyclonic storm 'Nilofar' in Arabian Sea along Gujarat coast," it said.
