Bhubaneswar, June 1:
Temperature in most places in the western Odisha districts receded today under the impact of a severe nor’wester that lashed many parts of the region in the early hours today and claimed at least eight lives.
Only three places—Titlagarh, Malkangiri and Sonepur— recorded temperature over 40 degree Celsius with Titlagarh recording the highest of 41.5 degree Celsius.
The local Met office in a release this evening said thunder squall, accompanied by hail and gusty surface wind speed of 60-70 kmph may occur at one or two places over Odisha in the next three days from June 2 after which there will be a gradual rise in temperature in the state.
