Bhubaneswar/Cuttack: Many parts in the Twin City Bhubaneswar and Cuttack created an illusion of flood due to the waterlogging triggered by heavy downpour in the afternoon on Tuesday.
As usual the worst affected area in the Capital City Bhubaneswar was the National Highway stretch in front of the ISKCON temple where many vehicles including motorcycles and cars submerged under water posing a horrific picture from the nearby flyover.
Similarly, other low-lying areas which have earned bad name over serious waterlogging issue also witnessed a flood-like situation with all drains and sewerage systems witnessing overflow.
Commuters faced tough time in wading through flood water while returning from offices and work especially in Acharya Vihar and Nayapalli areas.
Bhubaneswar recorded 43.2 mm rain by 5.30 pm, says Weatherman.
To talk about the Millenium City Cuttack, the situation remained gloomier. Rain water entered into several houses due to the flash flood followed by incessant rain in Badambadi, Bajrakbati Road, Patapol, Tinikonia Bagicha and Meria Bazaar localities.
Notably, India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted the formation of a low pressure area over the north-west Bay of Bengal and its neighbourhood around 23, 2021.
Similarly, heavy rainfall alert has also been issued for nine districts of the State in next 24 hours.
