Heavy rain lashed several parts of Odisha

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.
