Heavy rain hits life in Odisha, UP

BHUBANESWAR: July

 Normal life was affected in several parts of Odisha, including capital Bhubaneswar, for the second consecutive day on Saturday following heavy rain triggered by a fresh low pressure in the Bay of Bengal.

Heavy rains were also reported in parts of Uttar Pradesh adding to the woes of the people as major rivers continued to rise inundating large tracts of land and displacing thousands of people even as the toll in the flood related incidents in the state reached 155.

Odisha  weather office has predicted more rainfall across the state in the next 48 hours.
According to the weather office, Cuttack received a maximum of 56 mm of rainfall on Saturday. In the last 24 hours, the business hub has recorded 133.8 mm of rainfall.
Similarly, Bhubaneswar received about 80 mm of rainfall during the last 24 hours. Also, Sundergarh recorded about 108 mm of rainfall.


The weather office has predicted heavy rain in one or two places during the next 48 hours.

“The low pressure currently lies in north-west of the Bay of Bengal. Under the impact, rain and thundershower would occur at many places over Odisha. The rainfall may be heavy at one or two places”, a weather office press release said. The fishermen have been asked to be careful while venturing into the sea.

In Uttar Pradesh, the situation was alarming in Baharaich, Gonda, Lakhimpur-Kheri, Balrampur, Barabanki and Shravasti, according to the reports.

Saharanpur recorded the maximum amount of 210 mm of rains followed by Lalitpur which received 150 mm of rains in the past 24-hours. Raebareli, Palia Kalan, Bijnore and some other parts of Western UP also received moderate to heavy rains, reports said.

Over 70,000 hectares of land was inundated by flood in Azamgarh while thousands of people had been forced to shift to safer places in the district where the swollen Ghaghra river was wreaking havoc.

The toll in the flood related incidents in the state reached 155 with three more deaths reported in the past 24-hours from different parts of the state.
