Flash floods have been caused due to incessant rains. Now, rainwater has entered most of the houses in Ward 6 of the NAC. Many houses have reportedly been damaged. Road communication has also been snapped as water is flowing at a height of two feet on the National Highway 59 passing through the Baliguda town. Traffic on Kandhamal-Kalahandi-Rayagada routes has been stopped as a culvert at Bataguda was washed away in floodwater yesterday .
Residents have urged the NAC and the district authorities to swing into action and ensure early discharge of water from the area.
