Over hundred homes displaced due to landslide in Meghalaya

89

At least three houses were destroyed and over a hundred others displaced by a massive landslide near Sibbari in Meghalaya’s South Garo Hills District.

A large portion of a hill came sliding down on Tuesday at Rongthragittim Songittal village due to incessant rains in the region for over six days.

Such was the force with which the portion of the hill came down that some of the displaced houses were pushed as far away as hundred meters from their original position.

No causalities have been reported due to the incident.
