Panaji: With incessant rains hitting the state for almost four days, the low lying areas were inundated with land slides affecting the railway and road traffic at the borders.

The landslide was reported between Castle rock (Karnataka) and Vasco da Gama section of South Western Railway affecting the train traffic on Wednesday.

SWR’s senior officer said that all the incoming passengers travelling by Goa express train to Vasco were stranded at Londa Junction (Karnataka) on Wednesday morning. The railways had made arrangements to bring them to Vasco by special buses, he said.

The road link between Belagavi (Karnataka) and Goa was affected on Wednesday afternoon when landslide occurred at Chorla Ghat on the state border.

Chief Minister’s Office, in a message released, appealed people not to take Chorla Ghat road as it would take at least six hours to clear the landslide.

Meanwhile, the low-lying areas in state’s remote talukas of Sattari and Bicholim also witnessed flood like situation.

People living in the village of Keri in Sattari taluka had to wade through knee-deep water after entire area was flooded.

Similarly, the villagers of Sal in Bicholim taluka had their temple and entire area inundating.

Bicholim Block Congress leader Meghashyam Raut said that the water gushed into the village after Tillari water dam gates were opened.

He said that the Water Resources Department of Goa government was responsible for the floods as there is no coordination between them and Maharashtra government.
