Rayagada: Gigantic boulders, almost the size of small rooms have landed on the Reningtal ghat road near Putasingh under Gunupur block in Odisha's Rayagada district.

These rocks came rolling from the hills following landslides caused by heavy incessant rains that have been battering the area since last night, local sources said.

Vehicular traffic on the ghat road has come to a standstill today following the landslide with commuters left stranded on both ends, the sources added.
