Heavy rain, gusty wind and a massive hailstorm have caused damages to at least 200 houses in the State, as per official figures. However, no casualties have been reported so far.

The hailstorm hit Phuaibuang and other neighbouring villages in Saitual district bordering Manipur on Saturday evening.

Phuaibuang village council president Lalthaliana said that heavy rain accompanied by gusty wind and hail hit the village, with hailstones up to the size of eggs damaging tin roofs of 235 houses of the 500 residences in the settlement.

At least 235 houses have been damaged in Phuaibuang, while detailed reports from surrounding villages are awaited.

Meanwhile, the district administration is extending relief to those affected and providing tarpaulins to families whose houses have been damaged.

Around 70 families have been provided shelter in safer places as their houses were not in a condition fit for spending the night if it rains. Churches and NGOs have called for a community service to repair the damaged houses.
