After a brief lull, the monsoon regained steam in Odisha on Monday, triggering heavy showers, accompanied by thunderstorms, in several parts of the State. The monsoon is likely to cover the entire State over the next two days, the IMD said.

“The Southwest Monsoon has picked up momentum and conditions are favourable for its advancement into the rest of Odisha. It is likely to cover the entire Odisha in next two days,” H.R. Biswas, the director of the Meteorological Centre in Bhubaneswar, told PTI.

Heavy to very heavy showers were experienced at many places in coastal Odisha and one or two isolated areas, he said, adding that Jagatsinghpur recorded maximum rainfall.
