Authorities Sunday issued an avalanche warning for the higher reaches of the Kashmir Valley, advising them to keep utmost precaution while roaming outside houses.
Avalanche is a slide of large masses of snow, ice and mud down a mountain which sometime created powder cloud. High-speed avalanche might be highly dangerous and be proved mass destructor.
Aamir Ali, head of disaster management in the valley, said, “Medium danger avalanche warning is issued for people living in Keran, Tangdhar, Machil, Chowkibal, Gurez, Bannihal, Uri and Gulmarg areas.
“People are advised to take precaution and not to venture about in avalanche-prone areas.”
There has been heavy snowfall in the higher reaches in the past three days. The weather office has forecast “fair weather” in the Valley from Monday.
