Havoc in Jammu as the city gets flooded


Jammu, July 27: It is not the fury of  the monsoons that have hit the city of Jammu as this is not the first time Jammu is experiencing heavy rains like this. Jammu, no doubt has recorded the highest rainfall so far this year today where at 8:30am in the morning the reading was 157mm according to Deouty Commissioner Simrandeep Singh. However, the flooding of the city is for other reasons.

The supremely flooded condition of most areas in Jammu gives a clear picture of what happens when land is encroached and illegal constructions are raised. Not just the encroachment, the laziness of the municipal authorities have come to be exposed for not preparing at all for rains which have not even stretched to over a six-hour period  yet and the situation is remarkably depressing.
