Bhubaneswar: Special Relief Commissioner (SRC) Pradip Jena has issued an advisory to all Collectors in view of the low pressure area formed over North Bay of Bengal and India Meteorological Department (IMD) predicting heavy rainfall activity over Odisha.

The SRC has asked Collectors to closely watch and monitor the situation as water logging may arise in low lying areas.

“District administration to remain in readiness to meet any eventuality and advice for fishermen to be strictly followed,” the SRC’s message to Collectors said.

Fishermen have been warned not to venture into sea along and off Odisha coast and North Bay of Bengal on 4&5 August.

“A low pressure area has formed today morning over North Bay of Bengal and neighbourhood and now lies over North Bay of Bengal off West Bengal-Bangladesh coast. The associated cyclonic circulation extends up to 7.6 km above mean sea level tilting south-westward with height. It is likely to become more marked during next 24 hours,” the SRC has stated quoting from IMD’s special bulletin-2 issued today.
