23

As many as 18 houses in the Krishnanagar locality of Shimla MC collapsed following incessant rain and landslides.

Though there has been no loss of life, the collapse in the landslide-prone area below the Cart Road has posed a threat to over 100 houses in the vicinity which have already been vacated. The cave-in took place early this morning as some of these houses had already been declared unsafe.

The occupants of these houses have been shifted to the Ambedkar Bhawan and Valmiki and Sankat Mochan temples.
