Bhubaneswar, May 5 IANS | 6 months ago

Odisha Monday confirmed two more deaths due to sunstroke, taking the death toll in the heat wave sweeping across the state to 12.


One person died in Angul and another in Dhenkanal district, an official of the state revenue department told IANS.

While 55-year-old Dhanuram Tudu died in Bandhania village in Dhenkanal, 35-year-old Gopi Dehury died in Poipal village in Angul, he said.

Though the two men died in the last week of April, the local administration confirmed their deaths only Monday, he said.

Although temperatures have dropped in many places due to rain and thundershowers, some areas continued to reel under the heat wave.

Bhabanipatna town, the district headquarters of Kalahandi, about 430 km from here, recorded a maximum temperature of 41.2 degrees Celsius Monday, the state's highest for the day.

Titilagarh in Bolangir district was the second hottest place, recording a maximum temperature of 40.5 degrees Celsius, followed by Sambalpur where the mercury was at 39.5 degrees Celsius.
