Jagatsighpur, Aug 17: Panic gripped Kujang block under the Jagatsinghpur district on Wednesday after a crocodile was spotted in the flood water.
Following this, people who have been stranded in the floodwater from the tributary of the Mahanadi are waiting for immediate evacuation.
With the high inflow of water from the Mahanadi, the Paika River flowing near the Kathakote area went wild. Subsequently, a wide breach in the embankment was opened up causing severe flooding across the block.
Meanwhile, a crocodile was spotted in the flood water raising concern for the locals who have remained inundated from the outer world so far. Watch the video here…..
