WATCH | 4-storey building collapses in Shimla due to heavy rains

According to officials there was no loss of life due to timely evacuation. 

A four-storeyed building collapsed in Chopal town of Himachal Pradesh's Shimla district after heavy rains on Saturday. The building housed a bank, a bar, a dhaba and other shops.

According to officials there was no loss of life due to timely evacuation.

As per media reports, some men sitting in the bar noticed sudden cracks in the windows and ran out of the building while alerting others.

The weather officer has predicted widespread moderate to heavy rainfall in Sirmaur, Solan, Shimla, Mandi, Kullu, Hamirpur, Kangra, Bilaspur districts and adjoining areas including Shimla town for Saturday and Sunday.

There is a high probability of one or two spells of very heavy rainfall in parts of these districts during this period, it added.

The department warned that downpours may cause traffic disruptions, landslides, increased runoff in nullahs, rivers and other channels leading to flash floods and poor visibility conditions.

It is advised to take adequate safety measures to avoid any untoward incident, the MeT office suggested.

Light to moderate rainfall is also expected in high hills including parts of Lahaul-Spiti and Kinnaur districts, it added.
