Cloud burst incident was reported from Sunali village of Uttarakhand's Chamoli district on Wednesday morning, while moderate to heavy rain continued to lash the state.

However, there was no report of any human loss or injury, said the officials at national disaster management and mitigation centre.

Several houses were hit by mud and slush brought over by the landslides in Sunali.

The rain also triggered landslides in Tefna and Tirfaq villages here due to which several houses collapsed. Due to landslide, the Rishikesh-Badrinath and Rishikesh-Kedarnath highways have been blocked at several places, they said.
