Bhubaneswar: Despite the southwest monsoon’s withdrawal from India, continuous heavy rainfall persists in various parts of Odisha due to an active low-pressure system in the Bay of Bengal. This well-marked low-pressure area has weakened into a low-pressure system, maintaining its influence over southwestern Jharkhand and northern Chhattisgarh, as reported by the India Meteorological Department (IMD) in their Tuesday morning bulletin.
As per the meteorological forecast, Odisha can expect heavy rainfall for an additional two days, owing to the persistence of this low-pressure system.
The IMD has issued yellow alerts for heavy rainfall in several Odisha districts, including Keonjhar, Mayurbhanj, Angul, Jajpur, Bargarh, Sambalpur, Deogarh, Dhenkanal, Bolangir, Sonepur, Sundargarh, and Jharsuguda on Tuesday.
