No flood threat in Kashmir Valley, say officials

Srinagar: The incessant rainfall for the last 48 hours has thrown life out of gear in the Valley even as the officials of Irrigation and Flood Control (I&FC) department said that there was no threat of floods in the Valley as the gauges are well below the alert mark.

A top official of the Irrigation and Flood Control department told the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO) that there is no flood threat, and the gauges are below the alert mark.

“At Ram Munshi Bagh the current gauge reading is 12 Ft and if it touches the 14Ft, flood spill channels will be opened which will recede the water level in Jhelum, and the gauge level in all water bodies is below normal,” he said.
