    The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted heavy rainfall in Odisha due to a low pressure system forming over the Bay of Bengal. The State government is preparing to handle any problems that may arise from the heavy rain.

    The low pressure area is currently located northeast and east-central of the Bay of Bengal, but it is expected to move northwest towards north Odisha and West Bengal coasts in the next 48 hours. The IMD warns that this could result in inundation of low-lying areas, flash floods, and landslides.

    The IMD explains that the low pressure area formed due to a cyclonic circulation over Myanmar and the Bay of Bengal. It is likely to become a well-marked low pressure area and continue moving northwestwards.
