In first, Mahanadi floodwater impacts road link in Banki

Bhubaneswar: The impact of the floodwater in the Mahanadi was marked first in Banki area in Cuttack district with a 2-ft-high water flowing on the Ratagada Hulhuli Brdige, disrupting road communication on the Ratagada-Subarnapur road.

It may be mentioned here that water level in the Mahanadi River has risen due to incessant rains occurring for the last four days.

While the Hirakud Dam authorities have decided to release water from the reservoir today, it is apprehended that the water level in the river will rise further. But, the Water Resources Secretary Pradeep Kumar Jena said there is nothing to worry as a medium level flood is only expected in the Mahanadi.
