Heavy rainfall and wind likely as low pressure intensifies.

Heavy Rainfalls, low pressure

Thiruvananthapuram : Heavy rainfall is expected to lash Kerala and Lakshadweep coasts over the next two days as a low-pressure area over Comorin area may develop into a depression over the southeast Arabian Sea off Maldives coast, said the Met Department Monday.

The Kerala government on last day sounded an alert along its coast in view of a well marked low pressure over the Indian Ocean, asking officials to ensure return of fishermen engaged in deep-sea fishing. The low pressure was likely to intensify into a depression, the Met office said.

The state government alert comes in the backdrop of Ochki cyclone that hit the coasts of the state, neighbouring Tamil Nadu and union territory of Lakshadweep in November-December last year, claiming the lives of several fishermen and leaving many missing.

It is very likely to move initially west-northwestwards and then northwestwards and concentrate into a depression over the southeast Arabian Sea (Maldives area) during the next 36 hours. PTI
