Electricity service has been disrupted in the Jumla district due to snowfall.

Jumla folks are compelled to stay in the dark of the disruption of electricity supply in the national grid due to continuous snowfall since Tuesday.

Chief of Nepal Electricity Authority, Jumla Distribution Centre, Naresh Dutta Rawal, said electric poles and wires have been damaged at different places including Micha of Chandannath municipality, Dansanghu of Tila rural municipality, and Phoimahadev of Kalikot.

"We have deployed employees in these areas for maintenance. Snowfall has created problems. Power supply will resume after technicians of NEA Jumla and Kalikot carry out maintenance of the damaged wire and electric poles," he mentioned.

Jumla is blanketed with snow. Farmers are elated as the crops they have planted would get better after a snowfall, according to the Agricultural Development Office.
