Heavy rain in many parts of Odisha in next few days: MeT

On August 6, there will be heavy rainfall at one or two places in Bargarh, Sundargarh and Deogarh, it said. The MeT Centre also advised the fishermen not to venture into the deep sea from August 4 to 6 as the surface wind speed reaching 40-50 kmph over the west-central and adjoining north Bay of Bengal will make the sea condition very rough.
