Lots of skindisease , diarrhea fequent and watery bowel movements; can be a symptom of infection or food poisoning or colitis or a gastrointestinal tumor are the main disease which is appearing to some persons resides theres. The most important problem is the drinking water, as the drinking water circulation pipes goes through these Badashankha and due to some leakages those dirty waters mixes with the drinking water and thus enabling some bad disease and contaminated water.
It may be a surprise or may be a un believable fact but it is truth and I have tried to decipher the reason behind it and somewhat find the clue. In this area predominantly there are many shops of temporary in nature, due to visitors delight many shops opened for profits and they use vehemently the polithin pack which cannot be degenerated and thus the big drainage system got struck with these polithins and the water clogging happens and then the floods after some what medium rains. This is a very precarious situation to believe it in but thee fact of the matter is that this is happening and the water flooding very dynamic evil effects also.
The most dreaded problem is from the electricity as when there is a mini flood like situation and is most of the elactical standings can be earthed and currented thus making the water totally current and thus elctrocutation can be a several and fatal so while travelling to Puri and especially at the rainy season beware of these facts. Try to buy the bottled water and do not drink or eat from the road side vendors as you may fall ill try to avoid food from outside and take food from a good and clean and permanent restaurant. Try to get good fruit as good fruits are available plenty nearer to municipal markets.
If you are at Puri and it is raining for 30 minutes then try to get back to yours accommodation or hotels as most of the area will be watered and above problems you may face. At Puri rain hardly pours for thirty minutes to one hour but the after effects of rain can stop you for more than two hours and if you are struck in such a situation then my advice will be to call the electricity department to cut down the power and then walk or stay that place still all the water get drained.
