Asking all ports in the state to hoist Local Cautionary Signal Number-Three (LC-III) in view of the depression, Sahu said that strong and squally surface wind from north-westerly direction with speed reaching 45-55 kmph gusting 65 kmph would occur along and off Orissa Coast.

Sea condition will be rough to very rough along and off Orissa Coast, he said adding that rain or thundershower would occur at most places over the state during the next 24 hours.

Heavy to very rainfalls would occur at few places with extremely heavy rainfalls (more than 25 cm) at one or two places over north Orissa whil heavy to very heavy rainfalls would occur at one or two places over south Orissa during the next 48 hours, the Met office predicted.
