Massive landslide blocks Nagaland-Manipur highway


A massive landslide near Khuzama check gate Thursday afternoon completely cut off the National Highway-2 (NH-2) that connects Nagaland and Manipur.
According to reports, loose soil from above the road, which uprooted trees, completely blocked the road sometime around 3:30 p.m.
Soon after the landslide, excavators were reportedly pressed into action to clear the road, but no work had started till the filing of this report.
A subsidiary road above the highway in the vicinity of the TB hospital was being used by light vehicles to traverse around the blocked road.
However, heavy vehicles had started to get stranded from both the sides as there was no alternative route.
Though travel advisory was yet to be issued, clearing the landslide could take some time given the size of the landslide. No injuries or damage to properties were reported.
