BHUBANESWAR, dhns:

Heavy rain occurred at several places in Orissa for the second consecutive day on Sunday making life miserable for citizens.

Meanwhile, the rain toll in the state has gone up to 36. The toll is expected to rise.
The situation is expected to worsen further under the impact of a fresh low pressure in the Bay of Bengal.

The local weather office has already predicted heavy to very heavy rainfall across the state during the next 48 hours.

During the last 24 hours, Krishnaprasad in coastal Khurda district had recorded the highest rainfall of 280 mm. The rainfall in Bhubaneswar, Orissa’s capital, was 84.5 mm.

Rivers in spate


Water levels in several major rivers like the Bamsadhara and Rusikulya in southern Orissa, Hati in western Orissa and Baitarani in coastal Orissa have already started to rise because of the heavy rain during the last 48 hours.

Rain waters have already entered into towns in several districts.

Some of the heavily waterlogged towns are Bolangir in western Bolangir district, Berhampur in southern Ganjam district and Nayagarh in coastal Nayagarh district.
In Bhubaneswar, rain water has entered into different colonies, particularly on the city outskirts.

Traffic affected


Traffic has also been affected at different places in the state.

In northern India, showers drenched parts of Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan, adds PTI. The monsoon showed signs of gaining momentum in these states while it was subdued in the national capital and some other places in the region.
