Rain hits life in Himachal
Tribune Reporters and Agencies

Shimla, July 8
Heavy rain disrupted normal life in several parts of Himachal Pradesh today. Lower and upper regions of the state received heavy rain since last night. Sundernagar in Mandi district recorded the maximum rain in the state at 112.8 mm.

The showers broke a dry spell in the districts of Mandi, Bilaspur and Kulu. Shimla recorded 24.3 mm of rain while Bhuntar in Kulu district recorded 44.1 mm of rain. There were reports of heavy to moderate rain from Chamba, Solan, Kangra, Una, Sirmour, Lahaul and Spiti and Kinnaur.

A report from Chamba said the monsoon showers led to disruption of water supply to the town last night. The rain, which was very heavy at Jadhera, the source of the water supply to Chamba, washed away equipment, including pipes.

The rain disrupted traffic at several places due to lanslides, besides affecting water supply, telecommunication services and power supply. Major rivers and tributaries were in spate and vehicular traffic was disrupted at many places. The Kulu-Mandi national highway was blocked due to a heavy landslide near Thalout, 35 km from Mandi, last night. Traffic was resumed this morning.

Heavy rain caused a flood in the Suketi khud. The Mandi-Pathankot national highway remained blocked for more than two hours due to landslides.

HAMIRPUR: Heavy rain lashed various parts of Hamirpur district for the second consecutive day on Thursday. The rain continued for more than five hours, as a result of which there was a fall in temperature.

People living near the banks of the Beas between Sandhol and Nadaun were told not to go near the river.

Farmers welcomed the showers, saying these were beneficial for the further growth of kharif crops.

MANDI: Heavy rain caused flooding of several houses, shops and government offices and destroyed cash crops worth lakhs spread over 100 bighas in the Balh valley on Wednesday night. People ran for cover as they feared a cloudburst and a flash flood in the nearby khud at Dharampur block, about 90 km from here.

CHANDIGARH: Arriving nine days later than its expected date, the southwest monsoon advanced into most parts of Punjab and Haryana and Chandigarh on Thursday and brought relief from sultry conditions prevailing in the region. The rain lashed Chandigarh (4mm), Panchkula (3mm) and Mohali (3mm) in the morning and brought down the mercury by a few degrees.
