He further said that landslide continues in different parts of Himachal Pradesh but it will not be massive. The state capital on Thursday also witnessed the fresh landslide and three vehicles were damaged due to landslides in the Dev Nagar area of Shimla City.
Due to the rain during the past 24 hours in the state, the soil strata are becoming loose and are resulting in landslides in the region. A local resident, Vinu Diman said that everyday people park their cars here as we don't have another place for parking. "These vehicles were parked and in the early morning hours, the boulders hit three cars and damaged completely after the landslide here." (ANI)
