July
Due to continuous heavy downpour over upper & lower catchments of river Subarnarekha, Jalaka, Baitarani, Budhabalanga and their tributaries from 4th to 6th July,2007 flood brought havoc in five districts namely Balasore, Bhadrak, Jajpur, Keonjhar and Mayurbhanj in the first week of July. Storm surge and saline inundation affected parts of Kendrapara district during the said period.
Heavy rainfall was experienced during the last week of June due to deep depression over the Bay of Bengal affecting the districts of Koraput, Kandhamal, Nayagarh, Ganjam, Sundargarh and Angul.
 
 August & September
 
          All the coastal districts had received heavy to very heavy rainfall due to deep depression over North West Bay of Bengal during August and September. All catchments of major rivers of Southern and Northern Orissa received heavy rainfall from 5th to 7th August’07 & 23rd September to 26th September. As a result, floods came in rivers Vansadhara, Baitarani, Subarnarekha, Badanadi, and Budhabalanaga. Similarly, the entire North Orissa was completely submerged by the floods.
