   Heavy rainfall in the last 24 hours caused several road blocks across the country. Most of the road blocks have been cleared except for a few.

Major road blocks have been reported between Zhemgang and Gelegphu near Tamala pass and at Reutala between Zhemgang and Trongsa. Another major road block occured between Chazam in Trashigang and Dhosoom in Trashi Yangtse, about 12 kilometres away from Dhosoom towards  Chazam.
