"Incessant rains triggered massive landslides at six places in the hill district in between New Haflong and Lumding area, including Mupa, Daotuhaja and Phaiding resulting in the disruption of Umrangshu-Dihangi Road and railway communications in the district. The rain waters have also badly affected the railway line between New Haflong and Jatinga," Chanda added.
