Snow fall has fallen in Sambalpur for the first time in decades and everyone is confused whether to be happy or to be serious! Nearly 30+ minute of freezing rain become supercooled & a storm in which a lot of small balls of ice fall like rain and covered every road. The weather department have already forecasted of rainfall in the new year but no one has ever said that it’s coming in such a surprising yet shocking manner.
Luckily it’s not Simla kind of snowfall; otherwise people wouldn’t have minded to make snowman and take selfies.
Jokes apart, we all know that Daringbadi in Phulbani and Tensa in Sundargarh touched 0 degree Celsius almost every year but the kind of weather changed in Sambalpur may be an alarm for Global Warming and the changing climate in the region. But until and unless we get any official statement from the weather dept. it’s hard to say anything. Check out the video below.
