Western and Central India are expecting heavy rainfall. This comes after a depression over the Bay of Bengal had intensified into a deep depression and crossed the Odisha coast on Monday morning, the IMD said.
It also informed that very heavy to extremely heavy rainfall is expected over Odisha and Chhattisgarh on September 13 and over Madhya Pradesh on September 14.
North Konkan, central Maharashtra is also likely to receive heavy rainfall over the next two days, the IMD added.
"Latest coastal observations indicate that it further moved west-northwestwards and crossed north Odisha coast, close to the south of Chandbali between 0530 and 0630 hrs IST as a deep depression with maximum sustained wind speed of 30 knots (around 55 km per hour) and lay centered at 0630 hrs IST over north coastal Odisha, very close to Chandbali."
"It is very likely to continue to move west-northwestwards across north Odisha, north Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh during the next 48 hours. It is very likely to weaken into a depression during the next 24 hours," the Cyclone Warning Division of the IMD said.
