 - Sakshi Post

AMARAVATI: The Andhra Pradesh State Disaster Management Department (DMA) has forecasted moderate to heavy rains to hit several regions of state for the next four days due to low pressure in the Bay of Bengal. People are advised to be vigilant as winds of speed 45-50 km per hour would travel along the seashore.

AP disaster management said that ocean waves are expected to rise to a height of 3 to 3.5 meters accompanied by a turbulent sea condition. It cautioned fishermen not to venture into the sea for any fishing activities for four days.

A low-pressure area is likely to form over Northwest Bay of Bengal and the surrounding area today, said K Kannababu, commissioner of Disaster Management. He said that as a result of the low-pressure in Northwest Bay of Bengal, the state is likely to receive heavy rains for the next four days.
