Heavy Rainfall Causes Tree To Fall On Siliguri’s Sevoke Road
Due to the heavy rainfall that has been pouring since last night, a big tree uprooted and fell on Sevoke Road, Siliguri; causing the traffic to be disrupted till the Municipal Corporation came to clear the area.
After the news spread, Ward Councillor Manik Dey reached the site to take stock of the situation. He spoke with a Siliguri Times correspondent and stated that the tree was quite old, hence it could not stand the harsh weather.
“The Municipal Corporation has been informed. They will be coming to remove the tree soon,” Manik Dey said.
Electricity and cable services were also disrupted because of the tree entangling with the wires during its fall. The Traffic Police is currently posted there to ensure the smooth flow of traffic.
