The incessant rains triggered under the impact of the depression over south coastal Odisha and neighbourhood have caused massive inconvenience on Sunday. 

After a light spell of rain, water logging problems have been reported from different areas in the capital city of Bhubaneswar. Commuters on the Bomikhal road had a nightmarish experience due to water logging on the road. 
The local residents alleged this problem is not new to them. This problem occurs even after a brief spell of rain. They ascribed it to the clogged drains. 

Similarly, a flood-like situation has occurred in the Sialilati panchayat of R Udayagiri block in Gajapati district. With flood water flowing two feet above a culvert near Majhaghara village, the road communication between Mahendragada and Turubudi of Ganjam has been disrupted. 

Under the impact of incessant rains, five houses have collapsed in several villages under Kujasinghpanchayat of Gumma block of the district. The affected villagers are now taking shelter in the panchayat office building. 

Likewise, heavy downpour has thrown normal life in Similipal sanctuary out of gear. While Podadiha recorded a maximum of 104mm of rainfall, Kendumundi received 15 mm of rainfall. Due to heavy rains, the water levels in the rivulets emerging from the sanctuary are increasing, giving rise to the fear of flood. 

Meanwhile, the authorities of the Deo medium irrigation project informed that water from the dam is being released through two gates. 

The depression is likely to move west-north-westwards across south Odisha and south Chhattisgarh during the next 24 hours and weaken gradually.

Meanwhile, the alert issued to the ports and coastal areas is still in place. While, danger signal 3 has been issued to Gopalpur, Puri, Dhamra, and Chandbali ports, fishermen have been warned against venturing into the seas.
