Two people were killed and several others injured in incidents of house collapse due to heavy unseasonal rain and snowfall in Jammu and Kashmir Wednesday. The Srinagar-Jammu highway remained closed for the third day.

A woman died in south Kashmir's Shopian district Wednesday when a house collapsed because of heavy overnight snowfall.

In the Panthal area of Ramban district of Jammu region, landslides triggered by heavy rain killed one person.

Half a dozen people were injured at different places elsewhere in the Kashmir Valley due to falling trees.

Life was paralysed here and in other parts of the valley as heavy snowfall and rain blocked roads, uprooted electricity supply towers and flooded streets in cities and towns.

Higher reaches like north Kashmir's Gulmarg ski resort and south Kashmir's Sonamarg hill station recorded four feet of fresh snow.
