Hyderabad: The Met department on Thursday warned of heavy rain very likely to occur at isolated places in Srikakulam, Vizianagaram, Visakhapatnam, East & West Godavari, Krishna and Guntur districts of coastal Andhra on July 20 and 21.

There was 1 cm of rain each in Chintapalle, Chodavaram, Visakhapatnam Airport (all in Vishakhapatnam), Maruteru (West Godavari) and Paderu (Vishakhapatnam).
