DPR MOD JAMMU PHOTO/SN ACHARYASrinagar:  Over four lakh people are still marooned here as the flood waters continued to recede in river Jhelum and its tributaries, bringing relief to the flood-hit Kashmir Valley.

More navy and National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) teams have been flown into the Valley to help the ongoing rescue operations in the city.
