Flood threat ends in J&K

Srinagar, April 8: With the decrease in cloud cover after four days on Saturday, the flood threat looming over the Kashmir Valley has ended, an official said.

“Although the Jhelum River was still flowing marginally above the flood mark at Ram Munshibagh here at 7 a.m. today (on Saturday), it has fallen below the danger level at Sangam in Anantnag,” the official from the Irrigation and Flood Control Department said.

Water level in all the tributaries of the river in Jammu and Kashmir has come down, he added.

“The overall flood threat faced by the people in the valley over the last few days is over,” he said.

Despite the improvement in weather, water logging problems continued to trouble people in many residential and commercial areas here.
