Due to heavy rainfall in the hills since the past 48 hours, landslides have occurred in multiple areas of Darjeeling and Kalimpong. As a result, vehicles are stuck and the drivers are starving because of lack of food. Communication has also been terminated in the National Highways.

Meanwhile, continuous downpour on Thursday night resulted in landslides at Setijhora, Mongpong, Ganesh Jhora, Lava and many more areas.
