MUSSOORIE, July 11

Heavy overnight rains have led to severe landslides on the Mussoorie-Dehradun road on Wednesday morning causing hardships for local residents as well as tourists.

Several local residents as well as tourists who have left for Dehradun in the wee hours of the morning had to return to Mussoorie after they found that the road was blocked near Kolhukhet. Similarly, commuters coming from Dehradun to Mussoorie were stuck up near Shiv Mandir as a lot of mud and debris had accumulated on the road just after Shiv Mandir.

Sources indicate that the road has been breached at 2-3 places between Kolhukhet and Shiv Mandir. Although PWD officials could not be contacted but it seems likely that it would take several hours before the road is opened for traffic.
