Incessant rains cause flood threat in Kashmir valley

Srinagar: Heavy rains across Jammu and Kashmir have brought back the fears of last year’s devastating floods, which caused extensive damage to life and property.

The Jhelum river, which caused havoc last September, is flowing above the danger mark prompting the authorities to sound high alert in Anantnag and Pulwama districts.
The level of the river at Sangam in Anantnag district was 26.80 ft, which is above the danger mark, while it was 19.80 ft at Ram Munshibagh in Srinagar city at 8 am, also above the danger mark.
Jammu-Srinagar highway has been closed due to heavy rainfall.
