August 23, 2021 | BK News Service

A bridge, roads and standing crops were damaged in several villages due to flash floods in Ladakh on Sunday.

“As reported by Tehsildar, Leh, there was an outburst of an artificial lake near Rumbak village on Saturday, resulting in blockage of Zanskar river and thereby creating an artificial lake in the area,” Chief Executive Officer, District Disaster Management Authority (DDMA), Sonam Chosjor said.
The officials said that the artificial lake on Sunday morning triggered flash floods, damaging Rumbak bridge and standing crops in several villages.
“The road approaching Rumbak, Zingchen, Yurutse and Rumchung has been cut off from the main road,” they said.
They said rescue teams are on the spot accessing the situation.
Chosjor had issued an alert asking senior officers, including chief engineer NHPC Nemo Basgo Project, sub-divisional magistrates of Liker and Khaltsi, Tehsildar, Leh, Executive Engineer, R&B, Leh and Khaltsi and Ladakh disaster response force to stay alert and prepared for flooding in the Indus River.
People living downstream Nemoo were also asked to remain prepared to deal with any situation.
Officials said the road approaching Rumbak, Zingchen, Yurutse and Rumchung has been cut off from the main road.
Senior officers are monitoring the situation that is well under control, the officials said.
However, they said there was no report of any causality in these areas so far.
