No Respite From Rain in Uttarakhand, Landslides Continue

Landslips and landslides have riddled the entire hill state, obstructing smooth running of vehicles in many interior regions.


Dehradun:  Incessant rainfall in all six hilly districts of Uttarakhand has brought life to a standstill with no signs of relief, according to the Meteorological Department.

A landslide in Pithoragarh brought down an entire house, crushing four cars and a motorcycle this morning, a police officer said.

No one was hurt, but the fact that it took place next to a school puts the school building in danger, he added.

The Met Department has predicted heavy rainfall at isolated places in Uttarkashi, Chamoli, Tehri, Nainital and Pithoragarh districts of Uttarakhand. There could also be light to moderate rain and thunderstorms in many places.

Landslips and landslides have riddled the entire hill state, obstructing smooth running of vehicles in many interior regions.

Landslides have blocked roads at Tehri's Bagadhaar, Uttarkashi Sayan Chatti, Laldhaang and Rudraprayag's Sirobagad, making life difficult for residents and pilgrims.
