Heavy rain likely to lash South Odisha

Bhubaneswar: Heavy rains likely to lash several places of south Odisha today due to low pressure over Bay of Bengal. According to MeT reports gusty surface wind with speed from 35 to 40 kmph would prevail along and off south Odisha coast.

The low pressure area over west central Bay of Bengal and adjoining northwest Bay of Bengal persists over the same area and the associated cyclonic circulation extends up to mid-troposphere level, the meteorological centre said today.
Under its influence, rain or thundershower may occur at many places over south Odisha and at a few places over north Odisha.

However, fishermen are advised to be cautious while venturing into the sea.
