KAMALTHAPA

RUKUM, Jan 20: Continuous and heavy snowfall for the past two days has thrown normal life out of gear in Rolpa and Rukum districts. Mobility of people has come to a virtual standstill due to intense cold in the region.

Heavy snowfall continued till Friday. Snowfall accompanied by rain and thick clouds have crippled lives since the past two weeks in those districts.

Gotamkot of Rukum, Syalakhadi, Bafikot, Sisne, Pwong, Jang, Maikot, Hukam, Taksera, Kol, Ranshi, Mahat, Kakri, Chunwang, Chaukhawang, Khalanga, Sankh, Salapakha, Rukumkot, Morawang, Kanda, and Ghalma VDC have witness snowfall.

The continuous snowfall has led to the piling up of snow up to two feet. As a result, schools have remained close and elderly, ailing people and postnatal women have been severely affected.

The health centers in the region have also seen a surge in the number of patients with common cold.
