Several roads in and around Deomali have been blocked by the uprooted trees and the local administration and police have swung into action to clear the roads.

Many trees have been uprooted along the road between Naharkatia in Assam and Khonsa, the report said adding the Ramakrishna Mission School at Narottam Nagar has badly damaged by the storm.

Agriculture Minister Wangki Lowang, who is the local MLA, while assuring help has instructed the additional deputy commissioner to assess the damage caused by the storm.
