Flood threat in Kashmir reduced, toll climbs to 15

The flood threat in Kashmir Valley today reduced with improved weather and receding water level in Jhelum River while the death toll in the flash floods rose to 15 from the site of the landslide in Budgam district. Although the weather has been cloudy, there has been no fresh rainfall over the past 24 hours which has eased the flood concerns in the Srinagar city.

However, the weatherman has forecast light to moderate rains from tomorrow. According to MeT Director Sonam Lotus, light to moderate rain or snow would occur at a few places over Jammu and Kashmir during the next 24 hours. He also said that due to western disturbance, active in the region, there could be widespread rain or snow tomorrow and April 3 in the State.

In Kashmir Valley, schools and colleges have been closed in view of the flood threat and ongoing examinations have been postponed. However, University of Kashmir will hold examinations as per schedule from tomorrow in view of the improving flood situation, an official of the varsity said.

Meanwhile, the Centre today said that the flood situation in Jammu and Kashmir so far is not as grave as last year but authorities are on alert to deal with any situation. The situation had its echo in the Jammu and Kashmir assembly today with members of opposition National Conference and Congress staging a walkout, accusing the government of "undue delay" in rescue operations.

Two members of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) also staged a walkout protesting the non-availability of de-watering pumps in their constituencies. The central government yesterday granted Rs 200 crore as immediate relief as Prime Minister Narendra Modi rushed Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi to Kashmir for an on-the-spot assessment of the situation and to coordinate with state authorities with regard to the requirements.
