Kohima, May 29 (MExN): Several major power feeders under the Kohima Electrical Division were damaged due to the heavy storm on May 28, affecting power supply to many areas within the division.

As per the department, there was massive damage to High Tension (HT) and Low Tension (LT) power lines at Tseminyu and Ghathashi under Zunheboto District, impacting the feeders of 33Kv ITI, 33Kv Ringmain-2, 33Kv Chakhabama, 33Kv Lalmati, 11Kv Ministers' Hill, 11Kv Paramedical, 11Kv Jakhama Civil, 11Kv Jakhama Army, 11Kv Science College Jotsoma, 11Kv Zubza, 11Kv TV Centre Jotsoma, 11Kv Khuzama, 11Kv Kigwema, 11Kv Sendenyu, 11Kv Thizama, and other numerous LT feeders.
