70 Roads Shut, 51 Water Supply Schemes Disrupted Due to Rainfall

Meanwhile, heavy rainfall in Himachal Pradesh has caused significant disruptions. As many as 70 roads have been closed, and 51 water supply schemes have been hampered. Additionally, 84 electricity supply schemes have been disrupted due to the current weather conditions.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) earlier predicted a reduction in rainfall from July 8 onwards. On Sunday, 76 roads were closed, 69 water supply schemes were hampered, and 34 electricity supply schemes were disrupted due to the inclement weather.

"Govt taking proactive measures to address the rain situation"

In a statement, Onkar Chand Sharma, Additional Chief Secretary of the Himachal Pradesh Government, provided an update on the rain situation in the state. Sharma emphasised that the government has taken proactive measures to address the rain situation. "We have prepared and pre-positioned men, material, and machinery for various situations. We are making efforts to clear the roads as quickly as possible," he said. Sharma also urged tourists to exercise caution and adhere to local advisories issued.

"I would appeal to all visiting tourists to follow the advisories of the district administration and avoid visiting rivers and streams. Even during the summer, over 30 people died due to drowning in the state," he added. Reflecting on last year's weather conditions, Sharma highlighted the government's readiness. "Last year, there was 400 percent extra rainfall in the state, but due to the pre-positioning of men, material, and machinery, we were able to save lives. The IMD has forecast a normal monsoon this year, and we hope not to face any extreme conditions. However, the state government is ready for any eventuality."
