IMD issues heavy rain red alert in Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand

In North India, four days of rain resulted in numerous fatalities, landslides, and other catastrophes. Images of bridges being washed away, stones rolling down slopes owing to rain-induced landslides, and automobiles being sucked up by the rushing waters have shown the extent of the damage in the entire region.

The worst-affected state, Himachal Pradesh, has suffered 31 fatalities. While Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, and Rajasthan each reported one death, the nearby state of Uttarakhand reported five deaths associated with the rain.

Himachal Pradesh’s CM Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu, carried out an airborne inspection of the Kasol, Manikaran, Kheer Ganga, and Pulga regions. As he talked to locals in a refugee camp in Kullu, he estimated that 40 shops and 30 homes were lost in the Sainj district of Kull alone.

It is believed that the state has lost between 3,000-4,000 crore rupees in infrastructure.

Over the past four days, heavy to extremely heavy rainfall has been recorded in Jammu and Kashmir, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan. This has caused flooding in rivers, creeks, and sewers, seriously harming infrastructure and impairing vital services in the United States.

Today, three districts in Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh have received a red alert from the weather service. Authorities in Uttarakhand have encouraged residents to postpone their trips there till Thursday.

The Yamuna river in the nation’s capital has climbed to its highest recorded level in ten years, and it is forecast to grow even higher. The water level at the Old Railway Bridge in New Delhi reached 207 metres around 5 am on Wednesday, according to the Central Water Commission’s (CWC) flood-monitoring portal. Haryana has raised the river’s water level by releasing extra water through the Hathnikund barrage.

The Yamuna water level rose quickly during the past two days, according to data from Delhi. It rose quickly from 203.14 metres at 11 a.m. on Sunday to 205.4 at 5 p.m. on Monday, breaking beyond the 205.33-meter danger mark 18 hours earlier than anticipated.

To keep an eye on the flood-prone districts and the Yamuna’s water level, sixteen control rooms have been built up. For rescue and relief activities, more than 50 motorboats have been deployed, and diving and medical teams are prepared with all the required supplies and tools.
