The Indian Navy has deployed four ships to evacuate as many as 800 tourists stranded at Andaman and Nicobar's Havelock Island due to torrential rains.

"Civil administration requested the Indian Navy to assist them in evacuating 800 tourists stranded due to torrential rains and rough sea," said a statement from the Indian Navy.

However, all four ships of the Indian Navy are still waiting outside the harbour due to rough sea and torrential rains. "Evacuation process not commenced due unfavourable conditions. Ships waiting outside harbour. Adequate food, fresh water, medicines, doctors, divers and A&N administration personnel being ferried onboard to provide succour and relief," said a statement from the Indian Navy.

The Indian Navy was asked for assistance by the Andaman and Nicobar Island administration to carry out evacuation, following which the four ships were deployed.
