Odisha government has rushed ODRAF personnel and despatched dry food to two northern districts in view of a possible flood-like situation due to rising water level in some rivers.
The threat of a flood-like situation looms large with the water level of Baitarani, Subarnarekha and Budhabalang rising steadily following heavy rainfall in most parts of the state in the last couple of days.
Certain blocks like Binjharpur, Bari and Dasrathpur of Jajpur have been put on high alert as the river Baitarani could cause flood in those areas. (AFP)
