Orissa continues to grapple with floods

September 22, 2008
The flood situation in Orissa remained grim on Monday.

Large parts of the coastal state were inundated after authorities were forced to open dozens of sluice gates of a dam on the Mahanadi River following heavy rain in the catchment area.

Around 16 villages in Pipli district of the state continue to grapple with floods.

Meanwhile, flood-affected villagers said they were facing food shortage and were awaiting relief from the government.
