Heat wave creates havoc in Odisha

Mon 11 Apr 2016, 10:28:11
The Odisha capital Bhubaneswar yesterday recorded a temperature of 44.1 degrees Celsius, the highest since 2010. The heat wave conditions prevailed in some parts of the state with the mercury crossing the 42-degrees Celsius mark in more than half a dozen towns. Quoting Bhubaneswar Met office sources,  reports that the temperatures in Odisha have gone up by 4 to 5 degrees Celsius this time and heat wave condition was likely to continue for at least a week.
Unprecedented conditions have gripped Odisha as mercury continued its upward march. With no sign of system-based rain in sight, the State could well be heading for another year of staggering heat. The high temperature increased the discomfort index and most people across the state, preferred to stay indoors.
