Sichuan-Tibet highwayA section of the Sichuan-Tibet highway was blocked following a mudslide triggered by continuous torrential rainfall on Wednesday morning.

 

 

There are more than 20,000 cubic meters of debris fell from a mountain onto the highway, a pivotal route linking Tibet Autonomous Region and neighboring Sichuan Province, covering a 200-meter-long section of the road and causing another 60-meter-long section to collapse in Tibet’s Bomi county. But there are no casualties have been reported so far.

 

 

There are 130 rescue workers and villagers are clearing the road. The county government said that traffic is expected to resume in two days. The Sichuan-Tibet highway is one of the popular road for biking and allures the tourists for its scenery.

 

 

The Sichuan-Tibet highway is facing higher risks of floods and landslides amid the region’s rainy season, which lasts from June to August.
