Odisha is a flood prone state, and as a result communities have become resilient and government response efficient to manage immediate rescue and relief operations. The flooding began with heavy rainfall on the 21st of July and further intensified as a result of two more low-pressure systems that moved over the state and was exacerbated by subsequent release of water from the Hirakud Reservoir.
