Bhubaneswar, Aug 29 - Widespread and heavy to very heavy rain is likely in Odisha over the next two days, the weatherman said here Friday, prompting the railways to terminate some trains midway.

Under its influence, rain or thundershowers will occur at most places in the state during the next two days. Several places are likely to witness heavy to very heavy rain, he said.

Fishermen have been advised against venturing out to sea as strong winds, reaching 45-55 km per hour, are likely to prevail along and off the coast, he said.
