Incessant Rain Triggers Flood-Like Situation In Odisha’s Malkangiri


Malkangiri: As heavy rain battered the state on Thursday with swelling rivers and water bodies, fear of flood loomed large in Malkangiri district.

The road communications have been severely affected as several bridges in low-lying areas of Poteru, Kankoraokonda and MV-90 got inundated.

The road links between Malkangiri-Kalimela, Kalimela-Padia and Malkangiri-Motu were cut off following submergence of bridges and roads with rainwater flowing over bridges and roads at a height of four to five feet.

“As the situation continues to be grim, the administration has been kept on high alert to face any eventuality and is keeping a close watch on the situation,” a senior official said.
