Torrential Rains from Cyclone Remal Cause Major Disruptions in Manipur

Northeast Desk, 28th May: Cyclone Remal, which made landfall on the night of May 27, has wreaked havoc across Manipur, with torrential rains causing widespread flooding, traffic disruptions, and mudslides in various districts. One significant incident occurred at Sinam village along the Imphal-Jiribam road (NH-37), where a truck plunged into a gorge due to the relentless downpour.

The heavy rainfall has triggered landslides and mudslides in the area, leaving numerous vehicles stranded on both sides of the road. Authorities are working to clear the debris with excavators, but the operation is hampered by ongoing adverse weather conditions. Fortunately, no casualties have been reported from the truck incident or the overall flooding and mudslides.

In addition to Sinam village, key roads and areas in Imphal East and West districts, as well as Kangpokpi and Senapati districts, have been severely affected. In Imphal East district, significant waterlogging and clogged drains in areas like Andro Parking, Checkon, Mahabali, and Wangkhei have disrupted traffic movement. Major roads in Kakwa, Imphal West district, are also submerged, further complicating transportation.

Senapati district is facing overflowing rivers, which have inundated several localities. The situation is worsened by the swollen Imphal River and other rivers in the Imphal valley, contributing to the flooding and posing ongoing risks to residents.

Despite the extensive damage and disruptions, no fatalities have been reported thus far, according to officials. Residents are advised to exercise caution and stay informed about the weather and road conditions through official updates.
