Rain lashes Orissa, normal life disrupted

Staff Reporter

BHUBANESWAR: A few days after Orissa experienced a long spell of heat wave that claimed a large number of lives, several districts of the State are now in the grip of floods following incessant rains during the past three days.

Normal life has been affected at many places in Keonjhar, Bhadrak and Jajpur districts following floods in Baitarani. The river was flowing above the danger level at Anandapur in Keonjhar and Akhuapada in Bhadrak district on Wednesday afternoon. According to the officials manning the State level Control Room of the Revenue Department, flood alert has been sounded in the three districts and the district administrations have been kept on high alert. Six villages had been marooned in Bhadrak district after a breach in the Kochila right embankment near Pangata. The situation was likely to worsen as heavy rain was on the cards at places over the catchments of Subarnarekha, Burhabalanga, Baitarani, Brahmani and Mahanadi during next 48 hours.
