Sonamarg: An avalanche has struck the Hung area of Sonamarg, leading to the overflow of Nalla Sindh onto the roads.

Local authorities have issued warnings and advisories to residents in the vicinity, urging them to stay indoors and take necessary precautions. The avalanche, triggered by unpredictable weather conditions, has caused disruptions in the transportation network and posed challenges for the ongoing rescue operations.

However, the Mechanical Engineering Department has deployed machines to clear the avalanche and mitigate the impact on the affected areas.

Emergency response teams, including personnel from the local administration and disaster management agencies, are on high alert to address any potential fallout from the avalanche.

Kashmir witnessed ‘moderate to heavy’ snowfall over the past three days, increasing the possibility of avalanches in hilly and mountainous areas of the valley.
