The army and paramilitary forces have erected relief camps providing food and medical aid to locals, as they begin to rebuild flood ravaged Leh region of Jammu and Kashmir. However, the survivors, who have lost their homes and property in the floods, said they were still scared to go back. Meanwhile, Lt General B. S. Jaswal, Northern Command Chief, visited the injured in the Army hospital and took an aerial survey of the flood devastation. Indian Air Force helicopters have airdropped and distributed food, drinking water, and other aid materials to remote villages that have been completely cut off from the rest of Jammu and Kashmir.
