Following is a report from expressbuzz.com:

BOUDH: Heatwave along with low voltage and unscheduled power cuts have hit normal life in Boudh district. The mercury is hovering around 45 degree C for last three days.

The district has recorded two sunstroke deaths in as many days. One Lingaraj Sethi (50) died of suspected sunstroke in a farmland near Boudh town today. Another Mathura Nayak (55) died in Rahithani village yesterday. Police have seized both the bodies and sent them for postmortem. While recent shower brought brief respite from gruelling heat, it jacked up the humidity level. Due to prevailing heatwave, people are preferring to remain indoors during daytime. Boudh town almost wears a deserted look after 11 am. The low voltage has been a major problem in the district for last two months.  

SOUTHCO officials have passed the buck saying the district draws power from Phulbani grid station. Reports said the grid is being renovated and the low-voltage condition is likely prevail for some more  days during the intervening period. Low voltage and power cuts have also curtailed official work in the district.
