The Indian Meteorological Department on Saturday reported that heavy to very heavy rain is likely to commence over Odisha and Gangetic West Bengal from September 20. The weather department also said this rainfall would extend to East Central and East India during the subsequent three-four days. Due to the low pressure formed over the west-central flank of the northwest Bay of Bengal region, a cyclonic effect is predicted in the area by which Odisha will eventually receive heavy rainfall by Tuesday, read the IMD bulletin.
