The Yamunotri Highway, which was closed near the Khaneda bridge due to the arrival of debris and boulder due to heavy rains in Yamunaghati, could not open even on Saturday. It was closed at around eight o’clock on Thursday morning. On the other hand, the weather remains clear in Dehradun today. Many areas were cloudy.
The rain started on Wednesday night in Uttarkashi district on Wednesday night, near the Dharasu band including Yamunotri Highway Khaneda bridge, Chhatanga, Paligad and Kuthnaura etc. were stopped due to debris and boulder.
By Thursday evening, debris was removed from the highway at Dharasu Band, Chhatanga and Kuthanore, but the closed highway near Paligad Bridge could not be opened.
