A part of a concrete bridge was washed away into a river due to heavy rains in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K). The bridge in Jammu’s Gadigarh district, that connects the road to Jeevan Nagar, was severely damaged as a large part of it fell into the raging stream below. The falling of the road, which was an important route for its locals, has led to severe inconvenience for them.

In another incident in the Naushera district, a young man was trapped in a flooded water-body for hours, before the Indian Air Force (IAF) personnel rescued him in a helicopter.

Several areas in the union territory continued to receive incessant showers in the last few days, causing flash-floods in many locations.

According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), J&K will receive widespread moderate rainfall across various places till Friday evening. The local police teams and rescue teams have been deployed at various spots to keep the population alert and safe.

Back in September 2014, Kashmir suffered massive floods in many of its areas, affecting 2550 villages and dislocating close to 80,000 people.
