A landslide buried an attached toilet in Garzhikha, Wangdue yesterday morning.

The landslide occurred  around 4:30am.

No casualties were reported.

According to Bjena Gup Khandu, a machine was also deployed yesterday and had cleared the slide to avoid further storage of water to avoid slides.

“The main house is safe. The landslide had just passed over the toilet, which was attached to the house.”

Yesterday, the gewog and dzongkhag officials processed required documents for insurance, Gup Khandu said.

He added that the house resided below wetland areas, which had overflowing water due to rainfall. “There was heavy rainfall at night prior to the slide. That was the lone house in the area.”
