Jammu, July 21: A group of three experts from the Geological Survey of India (GSI) visited a Basohli region that had been affected by a landslide after heavy rains had caused collapses there on July 20.
A team of three scientists visited the Basohli area that was affected by a landslide, according to officials speaking to Greater Kashmir. “The geologists’ team was required to submit their report to the administration with recommendations for preventive actions following the field trip. The report is still pending, according to officials.
“Following the landslide in Sheetal Nagar, the residents of Basohli evacuated their homes and other buildings out of concern for their safety. The official stated that the current structures have not sustained any additional damage.
The representative stated, “We have partially restored Bani-Basohli road, and the work to fully restore it is still in progress.”
Even though the water level is well below the worrying level, the civil administration in Akhnoor has urged residents of low-lying regions to avoid coming close to the Chenab river.
“At least five to six families from the Garkhal area have left their homes and relocated to safer locations. In the Chenab River, the water level is below the alert level. However, the action has been taken as a safety measure. The residents of other low-lying settlements received similar warnings, according to a government official.
Around a dozen families from the Chang area have relocated to safer areas as a result of Kathua’s swelling Ujh River, according to an official.
