Introduction  Orissa has a history of recurring natural disasters. While the coastal districts of Orissa are exposed to floods and cyclones, western Orissa is prone to acute droughts; a large section of the State is also prone to earthquakes. In addition, the State is also affected by disasters like heat waves, epidemics, forest fire, road accidents etc. The history of disasters substantiates the fact that about 80% of the State is prone to one or more forms of natural disasters. 

Flood situation On 10th September 2011  Around 2600 villages submerged , 17 Lakh people have been affected by floods in 14 districts of Orissa of which  5,000 have been evacuated to safest places, even as the state government launched relief and rescue measures on a war-footing. While 5,000 people have been evacuated from low-lying areas in seven districts, Fourty persons have died so far in the calamity. 29 relief camps and free kitchens have been opened in inundated areas.The 14 flood-affected districts are Balasore, Bargarh, Bhadrak, Boudh, Deogarh, Jajpur, Nupada,Jagatsinghpur, Jharsuguda, Kendtrapara, Mayurbhanj, Nayagarh, Sambalpur and Subarnapur.

The situation is worsening  The water level in the river has stopped rising but still flowing above the danger level and pushing water into the villages through the breaches with threat at several places on the embankments. The administration and army are struggling to control the situation by rescuing people with support from local people. Animals in most of the places have spent sleepless day & nights and without food. Situation will become worse the as the water goes down because of contaminated food, need of drinking water and shelter.
