    The snowfall continues across the entire Himalayan region triggering avalanches at several places, specially in the snow-covered valley of Lahaul. The petrol pump at Tandi along with a hot mix plant of a road construction company were destroyed due to avalanches last week. Picture of the petrol pump after avalanche is posted below.

    Widespread and heavy snowfall is causing roads to get blocked and restricting public movement in the area. The Border Roads Organisation (BRO) has started clearing snow from the highways. So far avalanches in Spiti have destroyed two motorable bridges, four dhabas, a Mahila Mandal building, a liquor shop and some machinery. More snowfall is expected in the valley in coming few days.
