The minimum temperature in Daringbadi of Kandhamal district had dropped to 9.5 degree Celsius on Tuesday. This apart, 11 more places had recorded night temperature below 15 degree C in the last two days.
“After cold wave conditions in the last couple of days, there has been a slight improvement in the conditions as temperature has risen marginally across the State due to cloud cover across districts,” said the Regional Meteorological Centre, Bhubaneswar.
Normal life in Daringbadi - better known as Odisha’s Kashmir- has been adversely hit due to intense cold wave that has swept many places in the interior districts. Visibility in Daringbadi has dropped considerably due to dense cover of fog. However, this has not stopped people from indulging in physical activities and morning exercises to keep warm. A lot of people are also resorting to traditional methods like bonfire to protect themselves from the harsh weather conditions.
