Heavy rain pummelled several districts of north Odisha under the impact of Cyclone 'Yaas', the meteorological department said on Thursday.

Joda in Keonjhar district recorded extremely heavy rainfall of 268.6 mm over the past 24 hours, followed by 254.8 mm in the Jashipur area of Mayurbhanj district, the Bhubaneswar Meteorological Centre said.

The IMD had on Wednesday issued a red warning for nine districts for the next 24 hours.

In the after-effects of the cyclone in West Bengal, several houses and shops in the coastal town of Digha have been completely damaged.

According to the Regional Meteorological Centre in West Bengal, several parts of West Bengal, including Hooghly, North and South 24 Parganas, Birbhum and Murshidabad districts are likely to witness thunderstorm with lightning and gusty wind on Thursday.

The cyclone impacted East Medinipur, West Medinipur, Bankura, South 24 Pargana and Jhargram districts in West Bengal.

IMD said cyclonic storm Yaas weakened into a deep depression and lay centred at 11.30 pm on May 26 over south Jharkhand and adjoining north interior Odisha. It is likely to move northwestwards and weaken gradually into a depression during the next 12 hours.
