Landslides, floods block Roads
Jul 15, 2016-
Transportation along the Gamgadhi-Nagma road stretch of Karnali Highway has been disrupted owing to d landslides and floods triggered by heavy rains for the past few days.
Around a dozen vehicles have been stranded as the floods and landslides have blocked the road in several places.
While many people have been forced to travel on foot after the disruption in transport service, others have been waiting at Talcha Airport for flights to resume. Regular flights to and from the airport have also been hit because of adverse weather.
Vehicular movement along Beni-Jomsom road in Myagdi has also been obstructed after the flooded Thaktang stream damaged about 10 metres road in Kowang on Thursday. A makeshift bridge across the Marpha has also been swept away by the flood.
