The van was severely damaged.

In many places, vehicles, especially two wheelers, could not pass through flooded roads because the force of water was very strong.

Roads were flooded mainly due to lack of proper drains.

District administration officials said that flood water also entered houses at Wahingdoh area.

However, no casualty has been reported so far.
