    Rain, cloudburst block many highways in Himachal; all schools in Punjab shut tomorrow
    In Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua district at least 29 people were rescued Monday morning after they were stranded in flash floods following incessant rains.

    Heavy rains in parts of Jammu and Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh killed six people and blocked roads, said officials on Monday

    At least five people were killed in a landslide in a remote area of Doda district in Jammu and Kashmir. A man was feared dead after he was swept away in a swollen rivulet in Kangra district in Himachal Pradesh and five people were reported missing after their car was washed away in Manali.

    “A mud house of nomads was hit by a landslide in which five people including two females and three males died this morning,” said Doda deputy commissioner Simrandeep Singh.

    Three of the dead are minors. A compensation of Rs 4 lakh for the next of kin of the each of the dead, he added. The dead hailed from Bhatoli village in Gandoh area. Two other persons escaped unhurt.

    In Kathua district, at least 29 people were rescued after they were stranded in flash floods following incessant rains.

    “A total of 29 people including six women and 10 children, were rescued from various flood-hit areas of Kathua district during overnight operations,” said a police officer.

    Heavy rain lashed several areas of Himachal Pradesh on Monday with the weatherman issuing ‘high alert’ for Kullu.

    The Indian Air Force rescued two persons who were stranded near in Kullu district’s Nagwain area due to heavy rainfall in Himachal Pradesh which has resulted in flash floods. On Sunday, an IAF helicopter had rescued 19 people stranded at Dobi in Kullu district after flash floods.

    The Army has been called to rescue two persons stranded due to flash floods in Kangra district, an official said Monday.

    They are stranded at Saurabh Van Vihar, a park, in Palampur. Two scooters and a car were washed away in the flash floods in the area, he said.

    “Two persons are stuck there. Fire brigade and rescue teams are at the spot. They are waiting for the water level to recede. The Kangra district administration made a requisition to the Army Monday morning to rescue them,” the official said.

    Many roads including several national highways have been blocked due to landslides across the state. The tourist town of Manali has been cut off from district headquarters Kullu and rest of the state after an overflowing Beas river submerged roads on either side of the river after torrential rain during the last 24 hours.

    Schools in most districts were closed Monday.

    According to data recorded at 8.30 am at the Shimla Met Centre, Dalhousie in Chamba district experienced 170 mm rain in the past 24 hours, followed by Chamba 117 mm, Manali 121 mm, Kangra 120.8 mm, Palampur 108 mm, Dharamshala 62.6 mm and Una 62 mm. State capital Shimla experienced 23.1 mm rainfall.

    Yunus Khan, Deputy Commissioner of Kullu district issued a ‘high alert’ warning the public not to go near rivers and nullahs as flood-like situation prevailed.

    A truck and a bus were washed away on Sunday even when the water level in the Beas river rose sharply near Aut on the Manali-Chandigarh highway.

    The Chandigarh-Manali national highway has also been blocked at Dwada and Aut after the water spilled into the road. Late Sunday, district authorities in Kullu rescued 22 people who were stuck at Raisan near Manali while 26 people were rescued from Dobhi.

    Authorities opened the gates of four dams including Larji, Pandoh and Sanan in Mandi and Chamera in Chamba which worsened the situation downstream.

    Flooded rivers have caused widespread damage in Kangra and Chamba districts as well. At least half a dozen villages have been evacuated near Chamba town while students of Javahar Navodya Vidyalya (JNV) at Sarol have also been shifted to other places.

    Widespread rain and snowfall in higher altitudes brought down the mercury. Keylong in Lahaul and Spiti district shivered below the freezing point, according to the Meteorological Centre.

    In Lahaul and Spiti which has been snowed out, nine researchers, who had gone to 5480-meter high Gangstang glacier have reportedly gone missing. They belonged to West Bengal and efforts are on to trace them.

    The monsoon rains in India are here for at least one more week and will start withdrawing from Saturday onwards.

    According to India Meteorological Department (IMD) the withdrawal of southwest monsoon is likely to commence from western parts of Rajasthan around 29th September. IMD had earlier predicted that the withdrawal could begin after 17 September. However, the Met Department said on Monday that a change in the wind pattern over west Rajasthan has caused the deferment.

    “Prevalence of dry weather is likely over west Rajasthan from tomorrow. Reduction in the moisture associated with the monsoon flow and a change over in the low-level wind pattern is also likely over this region from 27th September. These are indicative of likely commencement of withdrawal of southwest monsoon from western parts of Rajasthan around 29 September,” IMD said.

    It added that scattered to fairly widespread rainfall is likely over southern parts of peninsular India, along with the east coast and northeast India. “Isolated to scattered precipitation likely over the western Himalayan region and dry weather likely over the rest of the country,” IMD said.

    The monsoons in India usually begin in June and end by September. Interestingly, the withdrawal of monsoon has been delayed by nearly four weeks compared to 2017.

    Meanwhile, National Capital Delhi, which has received good rain over the last three days, including a strong spell of rainfall throughout Monday, will see rain taking a backseat from Tuesday, Skymet Weather reported.

    However, the northern part of India, especially Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand is not likely to get any relief from heavy rainfall very soon. The Himachal Pradesh government decided to shut all state-run and private schools in Kinnaur, Kullu, and Kangra districts as a result of heavy rain and snowfall from the last 48 hours. The state also dealt with scores of landslides and mudslides.

    According to Skymet weather, the ongoing heavy rainfall over Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand will continue for at least 24 hours.

    "In a span of 24 hours from 08:30 am on Sunday, Manali recorded hefty rains to the tune of 121 mm, followed by Chamba 117 mm, Dharamshala 63 mm, Una 62 mm, Nahan 52 mm, Mukteshwar 48 mm, Haridwar 42 mm, Nainital 35 mm, Mussoorie 31 mm, Dehradun 30 mm, Tehri 29 mm, Kullu 28 mm and Shimla 23 mm," Skymet Weather said. In Kullu, a nature park on the National Highway 3, has reportedly been damaged by the flood waters because of heavy rainfall. Similarly, heavy rain and flood waters have hit a water storage dam of 110 MW in Mandi district’s Barot area. The water level has also been increased in the dam.

    Besides heavy rainfall, the state of Himachal Pradesh is also witnessing incessant snow in the upper region, as the town of Keylong, which is the administrative centre of the Lahaul Spiti district, has been hit by fresh snow.

    Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh ordered the closure of all schools and colleges due to incessant rains. The decision has been taken after Singh reviewed a flood-like situation that was triggered in the state because of the rainfall. The army has also been asked on alert to help the state, in case the situations go out of hands.

    A yellow alert has been issued in Kerala’s Palakkad, Idukki, Thrissur and Wayanad districts till September 26, as the state is yet to come to terms from the devastating floods in August. The Met Centre in Thiruvananthapuram has also predicted a heavy rainfall ranging between 64.4 mm to 124.4 mm in these districts.

    The State Disaster Management Authority taking a cue from the earlier incident has apprised district authorities to be on their toes and directed them to take necessary precautions.

    Rohtang Pass and entire Lahaul-Spiti district is buried under snow.
    SHIMLA: All 42 stranded students of Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee who were missing after crossing Hampta Pass in Manali on September 19 for Chhatru are safe and camped at Sissu village of Lahaul-Spiti district. On the opening of the road to Rohtang tunnel, they will be transported to Manali any moment.

    Himachal Pradesh Agriculture and Tribal Development Minister Dr Ram Lal Markanda, who is overseeing rescue arrangements in Lahaul-Spiti by camping at district headquarter Keylong, said that all IIT Roorkee students were at Sissu village. “We have pressed machinery to open the road up to tunnel to send people out of valley through tunnel,” he added.

    There was no whereabouts of the students who were trekking from Hampta to Chhatru and were last seen on September 19 by some residents of Manali. After reaching Chhatru, they reached Sissu in three vehicles and remained there after heavy snowfall blocked all roads in district and closed the Rohtang Pass for vehicular traffic.

    Earlier there was no information about them and the district administration too came to know about this on Monday night only.

    At present, there is no road connectivity beyond Manali as Rohtang Pass and entire Lahaul-Spiti district is covered under snow. Chhatru lies between Rohtang Pass and Kunzum Pass along Gramphu-Kaza road and snow has made the area inaccessible besides no telephone connectivity is available in the district at the moment.

    These students from Roorkee were lucky to reach Sissu village before closure of Grapmhu road otherwise they could have landed in trouble.

    Lahaul-Spiti administration has yet to establish contact with nine researchers from Kolkata who had gone to study the Gangsten Glacier right above Keylong town of the district while five students of IIT Mandi are also missing in Chandertal area located right above Chhatru towards Kunzum pass.

    The MeT said rainfall occurred at most places over the state in the morning and snowfall at isolated places in tribal Lahaul and Spiti district.

    Very heavy rainfall occurred at isolated places in Bilaspur and Hamirpur districts, whereas heavy rainfall lashed isolated places in Solan, Kullu and Mandi districts in the last 24 hours, The MeT said.

    Keylong continued to be the coldest area in the state with the lowest temperature of 0.2 degrees Celsius.

    The highest temperature in the state, 24.2 degrees Celsius, was recorded in Chamba, the MeT said.
