Amid the cyclone danger looms over Odisha, the Regional Weather Centre released a severe rain warning in several counties on Wednesday (1 December).
The Indian Meteorological Agency (IMD) has declared the low pressure system developing in the southern Andaman Sea will strengthen to its point of depression and will hit the coast of Odisha on 4 December as a cyclonic storm.
Subsequently, depression is expected to deepen to become a cyclone on December 3.
Although it is clear that the cyclone will approach the coast of Odisha, it is too immature to say where it will hit land and other details. Nevertheless, several coastal areas of Odisha will experience mild to moderate rainfall under its effect from 3 December onwards.
Red Warning : Heavy to heavy rains are widely expected at various points across Gajapati, Ganjam, Puri and Jagatsinghpur districts.
An orange alert has been declared for the regions of Kendrapara, Cuttack, Khurda, Nayagarh, Kandhamal, Rayagada, and Qur’aput.
