Heavy Rains Trigger Flash Floods in Uttarakhand, Two Killed as Homes Swamped

On Thursday, heavy rains killed two individuals, swamped homes, and obstructed roadways in the northern highland state. From August 11 to 14, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) issued ‘red’ and ‘orange’ alerts in most districts.
In the midst of heavy rain and thunderstorms, the Uttarakhand Police Department has also issued a warning of severe waterlogging and probable landslides. It also predicted a sudden surge in river water levels.
According to PTI, rains overwhelmed around 100 residential buildings and huts near Rishikesh on Wednesday night, leading the administration to relocate the occupants to safer locations.

Heavy rains also caused landslides, closing roads leading to Himalayan shrines such as Kedarnath, Badrinath, and Gangotri.
