SHIMLA – Residents in the tribal belt of Lahaul-Spiti, Kinnaur and Pangi in Bharmour have been powerless in the freezing temperature for the last one week as transmission lines have been snapped at several places due to the intermittent spells of heavy snow throughout the region. The Public Works Department (PWD) restored the breached culvert across the Satluj on the Tapri-Karcham stretch of the national highway for small vehicles today after 30 hours. The State Electricity Board (HPSEB) linemen restored electricity to Reckong Peo town, the district headquarters, today after three days but the rest of the district, including Spiti, Poo, Sangla valley and Nichar, have been powerless for the last four days .~ The Tribune
