Hundreds flee as flood inundates Jammu and Kashmir

 Srinagar: Hundreds of people have abandoned their homes as the flood situation turned grim in the Valley Friday.

The flood situation became serious with unprecedented heavy downpour continuing for the fourth day Friday.

The administration here is finding it difficult to reach the inundated areas.

Reports from all the 10 districts of the Valley indicate hundreds have abandoned homes in inundated areas to shift to safer places.

Electric supply in most areas of South Kashmir districts remains suspended because of uprooted electric poles and apprehensions of accidents due to electric short circuits in water logged villages and towns.
