Flash floods and heavy monsoon rains which have already killed more than a dozen people over the past four days in Orissa have also hit farming in the state, officials said on Thursday. Rains continued to lash many part of the state for the fifth consecutive day on Thursday although the weather conditions have improved in parts of the coastal belt including state capital Bhubaneswar and adjoining Cuttack.
