Heavy rain lashes Odisha; Met dept warns of more rains

FILE PIC: AIR
Heavy rain lashed several parts of Odisha, triggering a flood-like situation in some areas. Special Relief Commissioner BP Sethi said that torrential rain submerged vast areas in Malkangiri, Rayagada, Koraput, Kandhamal and Gajapati districts in south Odisha.

At least three wagons of a goods train derailed at Ambadola station and several trains have been cancelled or diverted due to heavy waterlogging on tracks. 

Meteorological Centre in Bhubaneswar said the depression over northwest Bay of Bengal off the north Odisha-West Bengal coasts has intensified into a deep depression. Under its influence, heavy rain is likely to pound several areas of the state during the next 48 hours. 


In Chhattisgarh, continuous heavy downpour for the last two days has thrown normal life out of gear in southern parts of the state.

Our correspondent reports that due to the increasing water level of rivers, the flood-like situation is prevailing in many areas of south Chhattisgarh.
