In the wake of the IMD’s prediction of heavy rainfall and hailstorm in eight districts of Odisha on Wednesday night, which will continue till Thursday morning, the Special Relief Commissioner (SRC) has issued a warning and an advisory for the farmers.

The districts likely to be affected by the hailstorm are Bargarh, Sambalpur, Jharsuguda, Sundargarh, Deogarh, Angul, Keonjhar and Mayurbhanj.

The SRC has instructed the authorities to monitor the situation closely.

The SRC has advised the farmers of the districts which will be receiving heavy rainfall and hailstorm to cover their harvested crops in order to avoid damage to their produce.

“Police and transport officials of respective districts may take necessary steps for controlled plying of vehicles on highways to avoid any road accident during dense fog,” the SRC advised.

The Met Centre has also issued yellow warning for dense fog in 15 districts, including Balasore, Bhadrak, Jajpur, Kendrapara, Cuttack, Jagatsinghpur, Khordha, Puri, Nayagarh, Kandhamal, Boudh, Angul, Dhenkanal, Keonjhar and Mayurbhanj.

However, on December 31, while dry weather is likely to prevail over the districts of Odisha, shallow to moderate fog might occur over the districts of north Odisha and at one or two places over Puri, Khordha, Nayagarh, Kandhamal and Boudh districts.

Similarly, dry weather is likely to prevail in the State on January 1 and 2, the Met Centre said in its latest bulletin.
