Snowfall Obstructs Nagma-Gamgadhi Road 

March 3: Increased snowfall has obstructed Nagma-Gamgadhi section of the Karnali highway. The Road Division Office, Jumla had opened vehicular movement on this section a week ago by removing snow. 

The road section has been blocked again by snow as it started to snow in the high-altitude areas and to rain in the low-lying valleys since Friday. 

Outbound vehicles from Mugu and the in-bound ones from outside districts have been stranded due to the blockage of the road.

Snow has accumulated at Jhadnaula, Satmod, Ghuchchi Lek, Siptichaur and Bulbule on the Mugu-Jumla border, blocking the road, said Dipendra Bista, the Chief of the Road Division Office, Jumla. 

The snow will be cleared from the road with excavator and the workers as the weather starts improving. 

Issuing a public notice, the Office has urged people to refrain from traveling on this section of the Karnali highway except emergency cases and to travel in such case only by adopting safety measures. (RSS)
