Bhawanipatna: Incessant rainfall in Odisha’s Kalahandi district since last night resulted in washing away of an approach road at Kanteshira, following which vehicular movement between Balangir and Bhawanipatna on NH-26 has disrupted.
Hundreds of vehicles, including passenger buses and goods trucks, remained stranded on both sides of the road.
A truck last night got stuck in water as the driver of the vehicle was not aware of the condition of the road. A crane was engaged to drag out the truck.
On the other hand, a portion of road got washed away near Baliguda in Kandhamal district due to heavy rainfall paralysing movement of vehicles between Raipur and Gopalpur on NH-59 and Kalahandi and Rayagada.
