Following the unfavorable weather forecast in J&K on Monday and Tuesday, authorities on Sunday issued avalanche warning for higher reaches in the Kashmir department.
An authorities of the Disaster Management Department said medium danger avalanche caution will remain in force throughout the next few days in Kupwara district while low risk avalanche caution will stay in force in Baramulla, Anantnag, Kulgam, Bandipora and Ganderbal districts.
” Individuals are recommended to avoid unneeded movement outside their homes till the warning stays in force,” the official stated.
Avalanches in greater reaches of J&K have actually ended up being a huge threat for individuals, especially the security forces manning the Line of Control (LoC).
Avalanches have actually declared human lives in much larger numbers recently than they used to in the past.
Experts are blaming deforestation for the growing avalanche risk due to the fact that as soon as a mountain slope is bereft of its tree cover there is nothing to stop an avalanche once it begins rolling down the slope.
