PARBAT, Aug 10: After the flood triggered by the breach of Turture Lake damaged roadway here Monday, the vehicular movement would be impossible for three weeks along the mid-hill highway in the district.
The 200-km road section was damaged by the flood caused by the lake breach. The lake is located at the border of Badigad rural municipality and Dhorpatan municipality of Baglung district.
