Rain Alert For State

Pradeep Jena, ACS Disaster Management and Special Relief Commissioner (SRC) has alerted the District Collectors across the State on Monday following forecast of heavy rainfall due to the low pressure in the Bay of Bengal.


As per the India Meteorological Department (IMD), a low pressure area may form over east-central Bay of Bengal during next 24 hours under the influence of a cyclonic circulation over east-central Bay of Bengal extending up to mid-Tropospheric level.
 
The low pressure area is likely to move west-northwestwards and become more marked during subsequent 24 hours.

It may trigger rain with thunder squall in many districts of Odisha for the next 48 hours. Subsequently, heavy to very heavy rainfall is likely to occur for the next three days, the IMD predicted.

IMD has warned that squally weather with wind speed reaching 40-50 kmph is very likely over west-central and adjoining northwest Bay of Bengal off Odisha Coast. Fishermen have been advised not to venture into sea during June 10 to 12. Whoever are at sea are advised to return to the coast by June 9.

The District Collectors have been advised to watch and monitor the system closely and report the any rainfall activity to the SRC office immediately.

Besides, they have to strictly follow the advice issued for fishermen and keep the district administration alert and in readiness to meet any eventuality.

The IMD said that the above condition may enhance rainfall activity with isolated heavy to very heavy rainfall very likely to commence over Odisha from June 10, the IMD said.

The low pressure system in Bay of Bengal which was expected to develop by Monday morning, will trigger rains in Odisha. Over the next 24 hours a number of places in Odisha will experience heavy rainfall due to the low pressure which will continue till Wednesday.

Thunderstorm and lightning warning has been issued by the IMD for several districts over the next 24 hours. Meanwhile, the monsoons will arrive in Odisha by June 11 or 12, said IMD.
After June 10, due to the low pressure system in Bay of Bengal, heavy to very heavy rainfall is expected in most of the districts, he said.
Capital City will experience thunderstorm and lightning activity accompanied by rains on Monday, IMD pointed out.
