People have been advised not to visit beaches or venture into the sea over the next 48 hours as the Indian Meteorological Department has predicted heavy rainfall in parts of north and south Goa districts with wind speeds of 45-55 kilometres per hour, officials said on Monday. An advisory about high waves in the 2.8-4 metre range was also issued by Drishti Marine, a firm contracted by the state government to provide lifeguards at beaches.

The firm said it had posted reg flags on the beaches along the state's 105-kilometre coastline, which indicate that the area is dangerous for swimming.
