The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted another low-pressure area formation by June 11 over the north Bay of Bengal advancing the southwest monsoon in major parts of Odisha.
This Low-pressure area may or may not turn into a cyclone. But as per IMD, it’s the first step in the formation of any storm. As per them, heavy rainfall may be seen between June 8 to June 11.
The Special Relief Commissioner has advised the collectors to keep a close eye on the whole situation and to be prepared with the necessary action steps.
The worst part is if this converts into a cyclone, India would witness a third cyclone — after Tauktae and Yaas within weeks.
Thunderstorms with lightning and heavy rains are expected in most of the parts of Odisha between June 8th to June 11 including places from districts of Koraput, Malkangiri, Nabrangapur, Kalahandi, Balasore, Cuttack, Dhenkanal, Puri, Ganjam, Jaipur, Bhadrak.
