ITANAGAR, July 16 � Landslides triggered by torrential rain during the past couple of days have thrown life out of gear in many parts of Arunachal Pradesh disrupting surface communication and water supply.
The Bameng-Chayang Tajo road in East Kameng district has been snapped by flash-floods cutting off both the circles from the rest of the district.
Due to landslides, blockages have been reported at Mebua, some 8 kms off Seppa, the district headquarters.
Official sources said today that many small streams in the area have swelled and are dangerously flowing above danger levels and have swept away many culverts along the Bameng -Chayang Tajo road.
Many vehicles from Bameng to Seppa were left stranded at Pachi following the flood.
Movement of vehicles on the Seppa-Bameng-Chayang Tajo circuit had to be suspended temporarily, the sources said.
Meanwhile, massive rains have caused havoc in Seppa depositing boulders and loose sediments in various places in the township.
The main thoroughfare Bazaarline and ALC line have been hit hard by the ravaging flood.
Landslips also disrupted water supply in the twin capital cities of Itanagar and Naharlagun since yesterday.
The 300 mm diameter ductile iron pipe carrying water from Nyroch river, one of the major sources that feeds about eight thousand population of Naharlagun and Nirjuli, was washed away at Tarajuli last evening.
Flashflood cut off Seijosa in East Kameng district from rest of the State forcing people to abandon their homes and damaged colonies, mainly the medical, teacher and veterinary colonies, besides damaging the approach road to the government higher secondary school boys hostel, the sources added. � PTI
