Cloudburst


In a tragic incident, a cloudburst wreaked havoc in Jadon village, located in Himachal Pradesh's Solan district, claiming five lives, while three individuals remain missing. 


The calamity struck as incessant showers battered the region over the past 24 hours, causing landslides that blocked key roads, including the crucial Shimla-Chandigarh route, leading to its closure for both buses and trucks.


Siddhartha Acharya, the Sub Divisional Magistrate (SDM) of Kandaghat, informed, "Five casualties have been reported, with an additional three people unaccounted for. Additionally, five individuals were successfully rescued following the cloudburst incident in Jadon village."
