The floods have also damaged roads, bridges, buses, and buildings in several districts, including Mandi, Kangra, Chamba, and Kullu.

It is to be mentioned that some stranded passengers have been rescued by the police and the civil administration. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a ‘red’ alert for seven districts in Himachal Pradesh.

The IMD has also warned about the potential occurrence of flash floods and avalanches in Lahaul and Spiti districts due to continuous rainfall.

The overflowing of major rivers has posed a threat to the lives and properties of the people living near them. Tourists have been asked to avoid travelling during heavy rains and not to venture out near river bodies. A portion of the Leh-Manali national highway (NH3) was washed away due to the overflowing Beas River.
