    Many parts of Odisha have been lashed by downpour for the last couple of days because of a cyclonic circulation and low pressure.

    The depression system, which lay centred east-northeast of Balasore and northeast of Paradip, is likely to move west-northwestwards initially and then intensify into a deep depression during the next 24 hours, the meteorological centre here said.

    Under the influence of depression, rainfall will occur in one or two places in Balasore, Bhadrak, Jajpur, Keonjhar, Sundergarh, Angul, Dhenkanal and Maurbhanj districts and heavy rainfall at one or two areas in Sonepur, Deogarh, Boudh, Jharsuguda and Sambalpur districts during the next 24 hours,

    Strong gusty surface winds from the northeasterly direction in north coastal Odisha and wind from the westerly direction in south coastal Odisha with a speed of 45-55 kmph and even up to 65 kmph are likely to prevail along the Odisha coast.

    A separate alert has also been issued for north-eastern states, Madhya Maharashtra, Marathawada, Konkan & Goa, Telangana, Rayalaseema, North interior Karnataka and Tamil Nadu for the next four days (till October 13) due to different weather phenomena.

    Issuing heavy rainfall and high wind speed warning on Monday afternoon, the IMD advised fishermen along and off north Odisha and West Bengal coasts not to venture into sea during the next 24 hours.
