Orakzai receives first snowfall in two years

Orakzai receives first snowfall in two years

KALAYA: Several areas were cut off from the rest of the tribal areas as parts of the Orakzai Agency received its first major snowfall in two years on Saturday. Mamozai, Daburi, Ghiljo, Tarangi, Dargai, Mandan, Manikhel Darra, Mandati Killay and other areas received blizzard, leading to closure of all major roads and cutting off these areas from the rest of the agency. Heavy snowfall pushed the mercury to the freezing point causing hardships for dwellers, particularly the recently-returned internally displaced persons. The prices of firewood have also shot up due to the high demand after the sudden drop in temperature.
