Srinagar: The threat of floods has considerably reduced as the water levels have started receding gradually in nallah Sindh and other rivers across Ganderbal.

Last night at around 10 pm, a flood alert was sounded after incessant rains since two days.

“Amidst incessant rains, the water level in Nallah Sindh at Duderhama has crossed the Flood mark. All residents of the downstream adjacent villages are requested to remain alert and cautious,” Deputy Commissioner Ganderbal Shafqat Iqbal had said in a tweet last night.

However, water levels since then have receded in most rivers and nallas.

Officials said that water level in Sindh decreased from 3.74m at 11 p.m. last night to 2.54m at 11 a.m this morning near Duderhama.

Meanwhile, the water level has increased in Jhelum river in the last twelve hours but the threat of flood remains minimal, the officials said.
