Nearly 16 districts in State covered by Southwest monsoon




 The Southwest monsoon has covered at least 16 of the 30 districts in State and was making further advances into some more parts of the state, a senior IMD official said.

      Those nine districts covered fully by monsoon were Malkangiri, Koraput, Rayagada, Gajapati, Ganjam, Puri, Khordha, Jagatsinghpur and Kendrapara, IMD regional director, Bhubaneswar, S C Sahu, said adding that seven other districts have been partially covered so far.

      He said that the Southwest monsoon has also covered some portions of the Nabarangpur, Kalahandi, Kandhamal, Nayagarh, Cuttack, Jajpur, Bhadrak and Balasore.

      The condition was likely to become favourable for further advance of Southwest monsoon into some more parts during 3 to 4 days.

      Sahu warned heavy rainfall likely to occur at one or two places over Gajapati, Ganjam and Puri districts by tomorrow.
