TAMGHAS (Gulmi), Oct 22: A dry landslide at Okhareni area of Tamghas on Friday buried a power transformer sending the Udindhunga Bazaar into a blackout. 

The landslide came crashing down on the 1oo KV transmitter and obstructed the power supply and a roadway leading to Bhuwanpani, Balkate and Naya Gaun from Tamghas, the Gulmi downtown. 

The landslide has also posed a risk to the entire village in Bedkharka of Resunga Municipality – 8 and Tamghas Extensive Drinking Water Project. 

It will take a few days to resume the power supply due to lack of space to relocate the transformer, Nepal Electricity Authority – Gulmi Distribution Centre Chief, Deepak Sapkota said. 

He added that the landslide inflicted damages worth more than Rs 1 million after it buried the transformer. RSS
