Due to incessant rains in Kashmir Valley, the waters of the Jhelum river has breached the flood alarm-level of 18-feet on Thursday, authorities said. Unprecedented snowfall in Sonamarg and heavy-downpours in the south-Kashmir catchment areas of the Jhelum have swollen most water bodies and mountain streams in the valley. Flash floods have washed away some bridges built over mountain streams in Bandipora and Tangmarg.
