Flood threat persists in Srinagar, ends in South: Govt

After improvement in weather condition and decrease in water level in river Jehlum and other water bodies on Friday, the flood threat is over in South Kashmir but still persists in Central Kashmir including Srinagar.
The water level was above red alert mark at Ram Munshi Bagh in Srinagar and above flood declaration level at Sangam in South Kashmir.
Chief Engineer Irrigation and Flood Control (I&FC), Mohammad Hanief Lone told Rising Kashmir that flood threat was over only in south Kashmir and not in Srinagar.
“Flood threat is not over. There is a slight relief since water is receding,” he said.
Lone said the flood declaration was on stand for Srinagar but flood declaration was over in south Kashmir.
He asked people not to panic as the situation is likely to improve from today.
Superintending Engineer (SE) I&FC, Lateef Malik told Rising Kashmir the water level was receding in river Jhelum and its tributaries.
However, he said the flood declaration remains stand for Srinagar because water level was above 18 feet level at Rammunshi Bagh.
“At 5 pm on Friday, the water level of Jhelum at Sangam receded to 18.9 ft from 22.1 ft at 2 am. Water level at Rammunshi Bagh decreased to 19.7 ft from 20.20 at 5 am,” Malik said.
He said the water level was receding in Vishaw Nallah, Rambiara Nallah and Lidder Nallah in south Kashmir.
“The water level of Vishaw Nallah decreased to 5.75 mtrs from 7.47 mtrs at 5 pm. The water level of Rambiara Nallah receded to 1.8 meters from 2.6 mtrs,” Malik said.
He said there was no change in water level of Lidder Nallah.
According to SE, there is a receding trend in water and subject to weather condition in south Kashmir, the situation may improve.
“The situation was comparatively good today than yesterday,” he said and ruled out any breach in embankment.
He, however, said overflow in tributaries cannot be ruled out but no major breach has taken place at any place.
“We are monitoring the situation and everything is under control. Hopefully, we would see more improvement by tomorrow,” Malik said.
Asked about breach in Dood Ganga flood channel at Bemina’s sector A, he said the breach was plugged by the department.
“The breach has been plugged with 17,000 sand bags and now the situation is under control,” he said.
MeT predicts improvement in weather
Director Metrological department, Kashmir, Sonam Lotus said there was a significant decrease in rainfall today and same weather condition would continue tomorrow.
He said there could be occasional rainfall tomorrow as there is huge moisture in the atmosphere but it won’t be heavy or last for more than 5 minutes.
Government releases funds
In wakeup of rising flood threat, government today released funds amounting Rs four crores for all the ten districts of valley.
As per the government order, the sanction has been accorded for release of Rs 50 lakhs each for flood prone districts of Anantnag, Pulwama, Srinagar, Baramulla, Shopian and Kulgam.
“The sanction for release of Rs 25 lakhs each for low flood prone districts Kupwara, Budgam, Bandipora and Ganderbal has also been accorded,” it said.
The release of funds in favour of concerned District Development Commissioners is subject to the utilisation of funds during the current financial year ( 2017-18) as per the approved action plan, reads the order.
It said the funds shall be utilised in accordance with the State Disaster Management Fund (SDRF) guidelines issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs, disaster management division.
Highway opens partially
Srinagar-Jammu highway was partially thrown open for traffic today after mudslides were cleared from landslide prone areas of Ramban, Ramsu and Panthal.
Officials said the traffic was allowed in the afternoon and vehicles stranded between Ramban and Panthal stretch were allowed to move towards Srinagar.
“The road was opened around 2 pm but was again closed after rainfall and shooting stones. When the rain stopped, the road was cleared again and around 300 vehicles stuck between Ramban – Panthal area were allowed to move towards Srinagar,” said Project Director, Srinagar, National Highway Authority of India, Ghulam Qadir.
He said no fresh traffic from Jammu was allowed on the highway until the stranded vehicles were cleared.
Qadir said one-way traffic would be allowed to ply from tomorrow subject to fair weather condition.
Hundreds of Kashmir-bound vehicles carrying essentials including vegetables, are stranded at different places on highway since Tuesday.
Pattan-Baramulla rail service remains suspended
The train service on Srinagar-Baramulla track continued to remain off the track for the second day today due to stagnation of rain water on rail tracks and embankments caused by the heavy downpour.
However, the rail service plied as usual on Budgam-Srinagar and Anantnag-Qazigund to Banihal tracks.
“The repair work could not be carried out today. Once the repair work is started, then we would be able to say when will service start on Pattan-Baramulla rail track,” said a railway official.
