Cyclone Yaas Aftermath: Flood Water Submerges Bridge In Keonjhar

Keonjhar: Several parts of Keonjhar district including the bridge at Turumunga are submerged under flood water coming from the Baitarani River following heavy rainfall under the influence of the Very Severe Cyclonic Storm ‘Yaas’.

Several small canals in the district swelled up after incessant rainfall for the past two days resulting in the first flood of the year at Baitarani River. Water ran over the bridge on National Highway 49 disrupting traffic on both sides.
