Jammu and Kashmir Traffic Update July 28
The vehicular movement on Jammu-Srinagar National Highway (NH 44) was stopped on July 23 after the heavy rainfall lashed the Udhampur area of the Union Territory on Saturday.
Earlier, hundreds of trucks remained stranded in the Udhampur district due to the landslides caused because of heavy rainfall in the Ramban sector. Recent incidents of heavy rainfall in the Union Territory, in July, have caused great damage to lives and property.
The India Meteorological Department in Srinagar issued warnings for heavy rainfall in Jammu and Kashmir. The weather forecasting department has predicted fairly widespread light to moderate rain and thunderstorm over the Jammu and Kashmir divisions and has also warned of scattered to fairly widespread light to moderate rains and thunderstorms for the subsequent two days.
It said that Jammu needs to be prepared as isolated heavy rains, thunderstorms, and lightning in the area can disrupt the traffic, cause landslides, and might result in flash floods, while it also cautioned Kashmir to be aware of the deteriorating weather conditions until the further update.
Overnight heavy rain near the Kahara village of Jammu and Kashmir’s Doda district on Tuesday resulted in floods that damaged the area and destroyed properties including an educational body and the building and grounds of Tourism.
