However, explain the situation department official explained, “Under the influence of a cyclonic circulation which has been moving around these southern areas. Coastal areas of Andhra Pradesh are likely to suffer from this disaster. As a result, of this circulation, heavy rainfall with strong winds is likely to follow for the next five days.” Additionally, IMD has also predicted that lightning and black clouds will dominate these three areas in the next coming days.
Which areas are at major risk?
However, in a tweet, very heavy rainfall is likely to cause major destruction in sensitive areas. The authority has issued a high alert while stating the possibility of a low-pressure area forming on the Bay of Bengal. As the Bay of Bengal will be triggering strong winds while accumulating low pressure, it can be said West Bengal will be the first one to experience the thunderstorms. Another tweet stated that heavy rainfall in the Tamil Nadu region could hit the surface in the next 24 hours. The state will most likely receive rainfall from 30th October, 1st November, and 2nd November.
Isolated rainfall is likely to fall, and the low-pressure area will be forming from Sunday. In Kerala, Kottayam and Idduki have been marked as ‘Orange alert’ (symbolizes heavy rainfall) and have been directed to take precautionary measures.

However, apart from these three areas, several other parts of the country will also experience rainfall with varying degrees.

However, areas of Uttar Pradesh can also receive heavy rainfall, as the reports state. Adding to the list Delhi has not received rainfall in the last 11 days, and in September, rainfall was recorded as 1.3 mm.
