Heavy snowfall in Himachal Pradesh has resulted in the blockage of approximately 60 roads, three National Highways across the state following recent snowfall in the region


As per the data from the State Emergency Operation Centre, 60 roads are closed in Chamba, Kangra, Kullu and Lahaul Spiti.


Earlier IMD stated, "Thunderstorms with lightning, hail, and strong winds (30-40kmph) are expected at isolated locations in Bilaspur, Chamba, Hamirpur, Kangra, Kullu, Mandi, Shimla, Sirmaur, Solan, and Una in Himachal Pradesh  during the next 48 hours."
