Bhubaneswar, May 24 (LocalWire): The Special Relief Commissioner today asked all district Collectors to collect data on southwest monsoon everyday and submit the same by afternoon.
Bishnupada Sethi instructed Collectors to submit the daily situation report of their district in a prescribed format regularly from 1 June to 15 October to the State Emergency Operation Centre through e-mail.
This step was necessary for monitoring the weather condition and flood situation during the southwest monsoon and the government asked Collectors in the delta region to remain prepared to face possible disasters during the year.
In a letter, Sethi further informed that the report must reach this department by 1.00 pm everyday including Sundays and holidays. He also asked them to send a nil report, if there was no incident of heavy rain/ flood on a particular day.
The information would be uploaded in the official website of the concerned districts, he added.
