Bhubaneswar: India Meteorological Department’s (IMD) Regional Centre in Bhubaneswar on Sunday issued ‘Yellow Warning’ for seven Odisha districts- Koraput, Nuapada, Bargarh, Balangir, Jharsuguda, Sundargarh and Sambalpur.

“The well-marked low pressure has now weakened and is likely to move towards north-west direction. Under its influence, interior parts and few coastal areas in the State are likely to witness light to moderate rainfall,” weather expert Ajay Kumar Nayak said, adding that a fresh low pressure is likely to form over Bay of Bengal by around August 19.
