NEW DELHI, India (CNN) -- A much-weakened cyclone made landfall near India's financial capital of Mumbai Wednesday, and officials warned of heavy rains in the region.
Earlier in the day, the storm prompted authorities to order the closure of city schools and offices in the afternoon.
"The cyclone has now weakened into a deep depression," M. Mohapatra, head of the weather office's cyclone division, said. It made landfall near Mumbai in the afternoon, coming in from the Arabian Sea, he added.
India's main weather office withdrew its cyclone warning for the western state of Gujarat and the seaside resort of Goa, the federal home ministry said.
However, it predicted heavy rains in the central parts of neighboring Maharashtra state, home to Mumbai.
Mahesh Narvekar, Mumbai's chief disaster management officer, told CNN that rescuers had been on a stand-by all day. No evacuations were carried out though, and there have been no reports of damage, he said.
India's air force was also put on alert, according to federal officials.
