Dense Fog Witnessed Several Places In Odisha
The residents of the temple city, Bhubaneswar on Thursday woke up to a thick blanket of fog that enveloped most parts of the cities.
In the capital city, dense fog was seen in Rasulgarh, Rasulgarh and Palasuni from 4.30 am onwards. The fog affected vehicular traffic at many places in the state, especially on the National Highway-16 between Bhubaneswar and Cuttack.
Visibility has also been sorely affected due to the fog hanging in the air.
A chilly morning and a heavy layer of fog threw the normal life out of gear. Vehicular movements on lanes and by lanes were severely affected as visibility dropped below 100 metres.
In order to avoid mishaps, commuters were seen driving vehicles with their headlights on.
