Bhubaneswar, Jun 11 (PTI) After Cyclone Yaas created

havoc in coastal districts of Odisha barely a fortnight ago, a

low pressure created over northwest Bay of Bengal appeared set

to bring heavy in the western region of the state on Saturday,

the Met office said.

"Heavy to very heavy rainfall is very likely to occur

at a few places with extremely heavy falls at isolated places

over the districts of Sambalpur, Sonepur, Bolangir, Bouddh,

Bargarh and Angul," the India India Meteorological Department

(IMD) said.

The IMD issued a red warning, meaning ''take action'',

for these districts.

The weather office also issued an orange warning

(alert & be prepared) for the districts of Malkangiri,

Koraput, Nawarangpur, Kalahandi, Nuapada, Dhenkanal, Cuttack

and Deogarh.

For districts such as Jharsuguda, Sundergarh,

Keonjhar, Mayurbhanj, Balasore, Bhadrak, Jajpur, Kendrapara,

Jagatsinghpur, Khurda, Puri, Nayagarh, Gajapati, Ganjam,

Rayagada and Kandhamal, a yellow warning (watch & be updated)

is issued.

The weather office made a rain forecast for Sunday and

Monday and Tuesday also.

Meanwhile, the Special Relief Commissioner (SRC) P K

Jena in a letter to all the district collectors asked to

closely monitor the situation in the districts for which red,

orange and yellow warnings were issued.

He said the authorities should be prepared to meet

water logging/localised flood like situation including urban

areas. The SRC also warned them about the possibility of

landslide in hilly areas.

He asked the collectors and municipal corporations to

evacuate people if required from low laying areas and kutcha

houses. The instructions have been given to the water

resources department to ensure protection of weak and

vulnerable embankments in rivers and major nullahs.

The IMD said that the low-pressure area now lies over

Northwest Bay of Bengal and adjoining Odisha and Gangetic West

Bengal coasts. A cyclonic circulation over the sea had led to

the formation of the low-pressure early this morning. It is

likely to become more marked during the next 24 hours and move

west-northwest wards across Odisha.

"Under its influence, fairly widespread to widespread

rainfall activity with isolated to scattered heavy to very

heavy falls very likely over most parts of east India and

adjoining Central India from today. Isolated extremely heavy

falls (20 cm) are also very likely over Odisha on Friday," the

IMD said.

Squally weather with surface wind speed reaching 35 -

45 kmph gusting to 55 kmph is very likely to prevail over

along and off Odisha coast and North Bay of Bengal adjoining

west-central Bay Bengal till June 14. PTI AAM
