The incessant rainfall in past 16 hours has increased the water level of almost every water body, however, it is well below the danger mark, officials of Irrigation and Flood Control (I&FC) department said on Wednesday.

A top official of the department told a local news agency, Kashmir News Observer (KNO), that the water level in Jehlum has increased but it is below danger level at every spot.

He said that the water level in some nallahs like vishow in Kulgam has increased and all the teams are alert along with machinery to provide possible help to the people.

There is a possibility of significant improvement in weather from today afternoon and the water level will possibly decrease after the weather conditions improve.

There are reports of cloudburst at several places but as of now water isn’t flowing above banks anywhere and all field teams are on job to access the situation.

“People can get information about water level from Kashmir flood alert android app and they must avoid going towards nallahs unnecessarily and water discharge in nallah is very high,” he added.

Chief Engineer, I&FC, Naresh Kumar told KNO that the situation at present is under control.

“In Sopore and Tangdhar areas, a small breaches have taken place in nallahs where the restoration work has already been started,” he said.

About Jhelum, he said that the water is flowing above alert level, but it would recede once the weather conditions improve. (KNO)
