Heavy rainfall in the last 24 hours in Meghalaya reportedly caused a massive landslide in East Jaintia Hills district and flash floods around Shillong on Wednesday. However, no casualty was reported.

The landslide disrupted traffic on National Highway 44, which connects Assam, Mizoram and Tripura. Minor landslides were also reported in Tongseng, Ratacherra and Dona areas.

On Tuesday, at least 45 people were evacuated from the outskirts of state capital Shillong after the city was affected by flash floods triggered by heavy rainfall.

Roads washed away at many places and waterlogged streets affected normal life in the state.

India Meteorological Department (IMD) forecast said that the heavy rainfall will continue till 24 August.

In June, 12 people had been killed in East Jaintia Hills in landslides caused by incessant rain.
