Panaji, May 13 (IANS): Goa's state-appointed professional lifeguard agency has issued an advisory, following the weather warning, asking beach visitors not venture into the sea as it may witness fast currents and high waves.

According to the alert issued by the Indian Meteorological Department, thunderstorms, accompanied by lightning and gusty winds, are likely at isolated places in North and South Goa. Additionally, the sea is likely to be extremely rough and may witness fast currents and high waves.
