Cyclone-Vizag1The Cyclone Hudhud, which wreaked havoc in Visakhapatnam and Coastal Andhra Pradesh, largely spared Odisha with minimum damages. Three casualties have been reported in the state. One person died in Digapahandi area of Ganjam district of wall collapse. Another person died near Puri Sea Beach.

The third death occurred in Kendrapara district. A rescue team member, Sahadev Samal, who tried to search for a boy, who went missing yesterday in a boat capsize during the rescue operation, died today. At least four deaths have been reported from Andhra Pradesh so far.

Around 93,000 people were evacuated by the state government in Gajapati, Ganjam, Koraput, Rayagada, Kendrapara and Malkangiri districts. Although heavy rains continue in these districts, the impact was far less than what was speculated. Things are normal in these districts. The wind speed will be reduced in a few hours, but if the rains continue, it may trigger flood situation.

Power services, telecommunication and transportation services have been affected in most South Odisha districts. Many uprooted trees have resulted in road blockade. However, things may be restored within 24-48 hours, it is believed. The administration has kept a close eye on the situation in all affected districts. Heavy rains occurred in many areas in Coastal Odisha such as Bhubaneswar, Khordha, Cuttack, Balugaon, Puri, Balasore etc.

Cuttack-Barabati

Although the Odisha Cricket Association (OCA) has decided to press the choppers into service to dry out the ground once the rain recedes, but there is no such sign yet. The Ranchi ODI was also cancelled due to rains. Australia are leading the seven-match series 2-1. In all probability, the Cuttack ODI will also meet Ranchi’s fate.

Cuttack-Barabati-Stadium

The ground situation at Barabati Stadium, is not encouraging. Waterlogging has been reported from across the stadium although the main pitch is safe. The wet outfield may compound the problems further.

Team Australia

Both Indian and Australian teams arrived in Bhubaneswar yesterday. They are putting up at Mayfair Lagoon hotel and did not a chance to do net practice due to rains and poor weather conditions. There is huge disappointment among the cricket fans in Odisha because of the existing situation.

Artificial Flood in Acharya Vihar, BBSR.Twin cities Bhubaneswar and Cuttack have been worst hit by the rains, as artificial flood situation is seen elsewhere in these cities. Poor drainage system and construction of flyovers, have added to the woes of people of Bhubneswar in Bomikhal.

Situation has worsened in Acharya Vihar, Jayadev Vihar, Rasulgarh, GGP Colony, Hanspal, Palasuni, Old Town, Ashok Nagar, Old Station Bazar and many other parts of the capital. Many areas have plunged into darkness, as the CESU has deliberately disconnected the power supply, making excuse of poor weather conditions. A two-storeyed old house had collapsed in the station bazar area yesterday. However, no casualties have been reported.

In Cuttack, waterlogging has been reported from all parts of the city, including Badambadi, Khapuria Press Chhak, Bidanasi, CDA, Khannagar etc. Train services between Khordha and Palasa are affected because of an overflowing river near Icchapuram. The routes of 29 trains are being diverted. Three trains – Bhubaneswar-Vizag Intercity, Puri-Tirupati and Visakha Express trains have been cancelled up to Palasa.

More deaths were reported from the cyclone-affected Ganjam district yesterday due to wall collapse. In Berhampur, two people died of asphyxia, as they had slept in the night by switching the generator on. Another person died in Kodala due to the same reason.

The relief and rehabilitation work in Ganjam and Puri district have been badly affected due to heavy rains. At least 70 per cent people in Ganjam district are still without power. If the rain do not recede within the next 24 hours, things would be very tough for the common people in Coastal regions.
