The Jammu and Kashmir floods that have killed at least 200 people and left thousands stranded began to recede on Wednesday providing rescue teams a chance to evacuate those affected by the heaviest rainfall in the state in 50 years.
At least 96,000 people have been rescued so far from different parts of J-K with the help of defence forces, citizens, state authorities and the National Disaster Response Force. Army Chief General Dalbir Singh on Wednesday reviewed the flood response and said troops will continue to work round the clock to evacuate people.
Tempers are rising amongst the locals; with some angry that relief efforts reached them six days after the floods began. Others complained about living conditions in the temporary relief camps. The real challenge now is to provide timely food, water and medical supplies to those left stranded.
