HEAVY RAINFALL WREAKS HAVOC IN BOLANGIR Featured

Report;Bureau Odishabarta 

Bolangir,13/08/19:There seems to be no respite for Bolangir district from the nature’s wrath as close on the heels of a drought-like situation, incessant rainfall is wreaking havoc in the district. 

In Bolangir town, schools, hospitals, residential buildings, and government offices have been severely flooded by rainwater. The flood-affected locals have alleged that they are yet to receive any kind of help from the local administration. 

“Our homes are filled with water after flooding. The situation is so bad that we are not able to cook food. No relief material has been supplied yet,” said a Bolangir town local. 

Some residents have also alleged that due to construction of Laxmizor Dam, water logging is severely affecting the area. 

“We had never witnessed such a situation and it is happening only because of the dam which is stopping the water,” said another resident. 

After the situation worsened today morning, police along with Fire Department officials of Bolangir and Loisingha launched rescue operations to relocate marooned locals. 

Speaking on the matter, District Emergency Officer of Bolangir, Shankarshan Pradhan, said “Members of the Fire department and cops have launched rescue operations. Soon, cooked food will be given to the residents.” 

Bolangir Sub-Divisional Police Officer Srimant Barik said, “We have rescued 60 to 70 people since morning. The rescued persons include children and elderly residents.”
