People living in areas like Nowgam, Chowkibal, Budnambal, Karnah, Keran, Jumagand, Kenthawali, Machil and Lashdat along the Line of Control (LoC) in north Kashmir have been advised not to venture into steep avalanche-prone slopes, he said.

They have also been advised to remove snow from roof tops of their houses to avoid any causality due to house collapse, the spokesman added.
