Bhubaneswar:25/9/21: Several districts of coastal and southern Odisha are to face heavy to very heavy rainfall under the influence of the proposed Cyclonic Storm Gulab, informed Director General of India Meteorological Department (IMD), Dr. Mrutyunjay Mohapatra, on Saturday.

Mohapatra said that the Deep Depression that has formed over north and adjoining eastcentral Bay of Bengal now lies about 470 km east-southeast of Gopalpur (Odisha).

It may intensify into a cyclonic storm by today evening with a wind speed of 65-75 kmph. The wind speed may increase to 75-85 kmph gusting to 95 kmph tomorrow when it will touch the coast.

Under its influence heavy to very heavy rainfall is likely to occur at most places in coastal and southern Odisha and extremely heavy rainfall at some places in southern Odisha on September 26.

Heavy rainfall is to occur over interior districts of Southern Odisha on September 27, he added.

Mohapatra informed that the sea is now unstable and the situation is to prevail till the morning of September 27. Therefore, the fishermen should avoid going to the sea.

Low lying areas may get submerged due to the rainfall. As the effect of the rainfall can be experienced from Vishakapatnam in Andhra Pradesh to Puri in Odisha, urban areas in the districts between them may face waterlogging issues, he added.
