Odisha to receive heavy rains in the coming days

Odisha  to receive heavy rains in the coming days

Bhubaneswar, Sep 20 (UNI)
As the Bay of Bengal is set to experience a series of cyclonic circulations, Odisha
would receive heavy rains during the next ten days, warned the Centre for Environment and Climate (CEC) on Monday.

"Numerical models indicate that a series of low pressure areas, all remnants of South China Sea systems, are likely to form over the Bay in the next few days," CEC Director Dr. Sarat Chandra Sahu said.

The cyclonic circulations are seen moving westwards from the South China Sea to the Bay of Bengal through Myanmar and Thailand.

One of these cyclonic circulation is presently positioned over north-west zone of the bay and it could cause moderate to heavy rainfall from Sunday till September 23, affecting most parts of Odisha with heavy rainfall likely between September 20 and 22 over districts of Bhadrak, Kendrapara, Puri, Jagatsinghpur, Khurda, Cuttack, Keonjhar, Mayurbhanj, Jajpur, Sundargarh, Sonepur, Boudh, Deogarh, Sambalpur, Bargarh, Balangir, Kandhamal, Dhenkanal and Angul, Dr. Sahu elaborated.

One more cyclonic circulation may surface on September 24 followed by formation of a low pressure area on September 25 and depression on September 26 over the north-west bay. It could cause heavy precipitation on September 26 and 27 over coastal and adjoining districts. This system may cross the north Odisha coast over Bhadrak district, he explained.

Dr Sahi added that yet another cyclonic circulation could develop over north-east bay on September 26
and it might turn into a low pressure area on September 28.

It will trigger heavy rainfall in coastal and adjoining districts between September 28 and 30 and is likely to cross the Balasore coast as a depression on September 29 and could lead to a flood like situation, he said.
