A flood triggered by heavy rain on October 12 night damaged crops in Tsakaling, Mongar.

Pemala, 35, said his cropland is now filled with debris. More than 250 orange trees were also washed away.

“I have got nothing,” Pemala said.

Mangmi Pema Tenzin said lack of drainage along the gewog road could have caused the flood.

Officials from dzongkhag’s agriculture sector are inspecting damage in the gewog.
