Road network broke down on roadside on NH 59 in Kandhamal

Kandhamal: Due to heavy rains in Baliguda in Kandhamal district, a culvert was washed away on Gopalpur-Raipur road near Bataguda on NH 59, causing communication to most parts of the district.
Passengers faced a painful time as hundreds of vehicles were stranded on both sides of the national highway as the culvert on Gopalpur-Raipur road was washed away in flood waters.
Subsequently, communication has also been affected in the districts of Kalahandi, Koraput and Nabarangpur, including Kotagarh and Tumudibandha blocks in Rayagada district.
On the other hand, many Bol bomb devotees who went to offer holy water to the Jaleshwar temple also failed to return to their original places. In addition, three panchayats – Lakkadgarh, Jhiripani and Bhandrangi, were surrounded by flood waters, causing considerable inconvenience to the residents.
