Over 100 Dead as Jammu and Kashmir
Over 100 Dead as Jammu and Kashmir Witnesses Worst Floods in 50 Years
 INDIA , 6-September-2014  6:18:57 AM
More than 100 people have died in rain-battered Jammu and Kashmir which is witnessing its worst flood in 50 years. Nearly 10,000 people are stranded across the state where the Army is assisting National Disaster Response Force or NDRF personnel in rescue operation. A boat carrying nine Army jawans capsized today during rescue operation in Pulwama. Seven personnel have been rescued, while two others are still trapped.

1Home Minister Rajnath Singh arrived in Srinagar this morning and held a meeting with Chief Minister Omar Abdullah to take stock of the situation. After briefing the Home Minister, Mr Abdullah drove him through Srinagar city. "I want to assure the people of Jammu and Kashmir that central government is with the state government, and we will provide all help possible," the Home Minister said.

2The uptown area of capital Srinagar is the worst affected as River Jhelum is flowing several feet above the danger mark. The river has breached embankment in the Pulwama district and red alert has been issued in parts of south Srinagar including airport road, authorities said.

3The southwest monsoon is vigorous over Jammu and Kashmir and the state has been witnessing heavy rain for past five days. The downpour is likely to continue for the next couple of days.

4The flood has affected almost all 10 districts in the Jammu region. Landslides triggered by heavy rainfall have damaged roads, dozens of bridges, buildings and crops.
