The monsoon season in Uttarakhand has brought about devastating consequences, with an unfortunate count of 52 casualties and approximately 37 individuals sustaining injuries due to heavy rains, leading to landslides and flash floods across various areas in the state. These estimates have been provided by official sources.

The impact of the intense monsoon rains has taken a severe toll on Uttarakhand, resulting in an estimated loss of around Rs 650 crore so far, with the potential for this figure to increase in the days ahead. The State Disaster Management Department has reported 52 fatalities, 37 injuries, and 19 individuals missing due to accidents caused by rain-related disasters.

In anticipation of the aftermath of the monsoon, the State Disaster Management Department plans to compile an immediate report for submission to the Central Government. This proactive measure aims to expedite relief efforts following the disaster.

Responding to the situation, the Chief Minister’s directives have prompted the deployment of the SDRF and NDRF to strategic locations. Additionally, two helicopters have been placed on standby to assist in areas severely affected by the disaster.

Earlier, a tragic event unfolded as a result of a landslide at Tarsali under Chowki Phata in Uttarakhand’s Rudraprayag district, claiming the lives of five pilgrims who were traveling in a car. This incident, which occurred on Saturday, had tragic consequences for these individuals who were en route to Kedarnath. The subsequent debris blocked the Guptkashi-Gaurikund highway, effectively halting traffic to Kedarnath Dham on Friday. Reports indicate that a significant portion of the road, about 60 meters, was heavily damaged and washed away due to the incident.

The state has been experiencing incessant rain for the past few days, with several districts, including Rudraprayag, bearing the brunt of the continuous downpour.
